abstract

  • A young Bedouin woman with serologically proven Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection is presented. Along with pulmonary involvement, fever and bullous myringitis, she presented with erythema multiforme minor, a rare complication of mycoplasma infection of which many physicians may not be aware. The skin participation in mycoplasma infections is discussed. Mycoplasma infection should be considered in the differential diagnosis of erythema multiforme.
