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. pneumonia 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. pneumonia infection since 2005.
