Abstract

Neuropathological findings in a patient with fatal neurological complications due to infection with Mycoplasma pneumoniae were similar to those seen in postinfectious encephalitis and acute hemorrhagic leukoencephalitis. This case supports the hypothesis that immune mechanisms play a role in the pathogenesis of neurological symptoms during mycoplasmal infections.
