Huber, Benedikt M; Meyer Sauteur, Patrick M; Unger, Wendy W J; Hasters, Paul; Eugster, Marcel R; Brandt, Simone; Bloemberg, Guido V; Natalucci, Giancarlo; Berger, Christoph (2018). Vertical transmission of Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection. Neonatology, 114(4):332-336.

Abstract

Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a significant cause of pneumonia in school-aged children and young adults. We report a case of neonatal M. pneumoniae pneumonia in a preterm child manifesting in the first hours of life. Vertical transmission was demonstrated by the detection of M. pneumoniae in inflamed placental tissue indicating chorioamnionitis.
