Abstract

Among 380 Mycoplasma pneumoniae isolates from 3,678 pediatric patients with community-acquired pneumonia, 50 macrolide-resistant strains had an A2063G transition in domain V of the 23S rRNA, whereas 5 had an A2064G transition. These resistant strains increased rapidly from April 2002 to December 2006.
