An increased incidence of Mycoplasma pneumoniae infections was reported in 2011 in two cities in France, Bordeaux and Caen. Two complementary molecular typing methods, PCR-RFLP on adhesin P1 and multilocus variable number tandem repeat analysis (MLVA), were used to determine whether this phenomenon was clonal. In 2011, the percentage of M. pneumoniae-positive patients doubled in both cities compared with 2010. Macrolide resistance remained stable at 8.3% of patients. Eighteen MLVA types were… CONTINUE READING
