Anterior uveitis associated with Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia: a case report.

Author information

Department of Ophthalmology, University of Pavia, Italy.


The authors report a case of bilateral uveitis following Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia verified by IgM and rising IgG antibodies against the organism. Uveitis is a rare manifestation of Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia and since it is a common pathogen, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis, even in the absence of respiratory symptoms or neurological findings. Immunobiological hypotheses are briefly discussed.
