Effect of 23S rRNA gene mutations in Mycoplasma pneumoniae on severity of communityacquired pneumonia in young adult patients treated at the Smolensk militar y hospital

Objective. To evaluate effect of 23S rRNA gene mutations in Mycoplasma pneumoniae on severity of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) in young adult patients. Materials and Methods. A total of 42 case histories of young adult patients with CAP treated at the Smolensk military hospital over the period of 25 October 2017 to 25 December 2019 were reviewed. «AmpliSens® Mycoplasma pneumoniae/Chlamydophila pneumoniae-FL» real-time PCR kit was used to detect M. pneumoniae from nasopharyngeal swabs collected prior to antimicrobial therapy.
