Abstract

A patient with a long history of arthritis developed pneumonia. Two weeks into her hospital course, the patient developed effusions in her knee and wrist that yielded cultures positive for Mycoplasma pneumoniae. To our knowldege, this is the third reported case of M. pneumoniae isolation from a joint and the first report of isolation of M. pneumoniae from two joints in a patient without hypogammaglobulinemia. The evidence suggests that in individuals with atypical pneumonia and joint effusions, M. pneumoniae should be considered as a source of infection.
