We have reported a patient with Mycoplasma pneumonia, cold agglutinins, and a hemolytic anemia which was probably secondary to vigorous treatment of hyperpyrexia by a cooling mattress. Physicians caring for patients with Mycoplasma pneumonia should be alerted to the potential untoward effect of a cooling mattress on an individual with a high titer of cold agglutinins.
