Abstract

Mycoplasma pneumoniae (M. pneumoniae) is common pathogen of the respiratory tract. M. pneumoniae infection cause a wide variety of clinical manifestation involving the central (CNS) and peripheral nervous systems. There is no satisfactory explanation for the pathophysiology of CNS complication, but possibilities include direct infection and an immune-mediated reaction. We report a case of encephalitis by M. pneumoniae infection which showed uncommon course of multiple neurologic manifestations and reviewed the literature about the CNS complication of M. pneumoniae.
