  • Hello Good sir.
    Which souce tells you that Mycoplama pneumoniae is facultativ anaerobe ?
    I ask this, based on the fact that Murray et al.'s "Medical Microbiology" 8th Edition, writes on page 335, that the mycoplasma genus is generally facultativ anerob, but M. pneumoniae is a strict aerobe.

    Thanks for the video, and have a nice day

  • I remember getting diagnosed with this, ER doctor decided to keep me isolated for a night until a specialist saw me. A nurse thought I was faking until she saw my lung x ray with a walnut sized mass inside of it.

  • I am from Germany and I had this when I went to school in Australia for exchange in a bording school at the age of 16. In the beginning they thought I just had a bad flu combined with a bacterial superinfection…. thus they treated it with standard antibiotics with no effect. It got worse every day.

    When I got very sick I looked at the X-ray with my Australian doctor and the first word spoken was MY "shit"… coz as my father was a doctor as well I knew how a lung on X-ray should look like: You should see nothing at all coz mostly it consists of 'emptyness'.

    But I could see my whole right wing and half of the left bright alight. They found out it actually was mycoplasm… and that atypical interstitial penumoniae was really painful for me. With every (unproductive) cough it felt like sombody took a knife and pushed it between my ribs. I needed strong painkillers so I could at least sleep. I was taken to hospital immediately as well.

    When they found out about mycoplasm in hospital they immediately switched to macrolides.

    Fortunately in the end I got rid of it. Thank god no chronification!

    During my time at the uni I once had a student of medicine as a flatmate…. she wanted to know my complete 'story'. When I told her about mycosplasm she just said: "Awesome! This is a pretty rare pathologic microbe here! Do you know how rarely this happens here?" Guess my answer…. 😀
