Abstract

Recent reports from several northern European countries indicate an increase in detection of Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection in the past two years, notably in children aged 5-15 years. Analysis of our laboratory database showed a similar pattern, with a higher proportion of respiratory samples positive for M. pneumoniae by real-time PCR in paediatric patients aged 5-15 years. Our data indicate that in 2010 and 2011, France experienced the first epidemic peak of M. pneumoniae infection since 2005.
