No evidence of Mycoplasma pneumoniae in acute myringitis.

Author information

Tampere University Hospital, Tampere, Finland.


Our aim was to discover Mycoplasma pneumoniae in bullous and hemorrhagic myringitis in children <2 years of age. Middle ear fluid samples (n = 37) and samples taken from the blisters of the tympanic membranes (n = 12) studied by polymerase chain reaction for M. pneumoniae were negative. This study does not support an important role for M. pneumoniae as an etiologic agent in acute myringitis.
