Mycoplasma pneumoniae endophthalmitis in a Cuban pediatric patient
Bacterial endophthalmitis is the most severe form of vision-threatening ocular infection. Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a primary
respiratory pathogen that has been associated with several extrapulmonary manifestation, including ocular infection. In this
work, we presented the microbiology diagnosis of an endophalmitis by M. pneumoniae using a novel A.R.I. WELL D-ONE®
(CPM Scientifica, Italy) commercial micromethod in a Cuban pediatric patient. After positive M. pneumoniae confirmation,
treatment with levofloxacin was initiated and successfully eliminated the ocular infection.
