One case of bronchiolitis obliterans associated with Stevens-Johnson syndrome due to mycoplasma pneumoniae infection

Abstract

Bronchiolitis obliterans is an infrequent disorder characterized by partial or complete obstruction of bronchi and bronchioles by fibrous tissue following an insult to the lower respiratory tract. In the pediatric population, Bronchiolitis obliterans has most frequently been preceded by respiratory tract infection by adenovirus, influenza, measles. But it may occur in young adults after mycoplasma infection. We experienced the case of Bronchiolitis obliterans, which developed after the onset of Stevens-Johnson syndrome due to Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection and present a brief review of the related literature.
