Abstract


Mycoplasma pneumoniae takes the leading place in the etiology of community-acquired pneumonia in children.

The authors describe the features of disease epidemiology, with the focus on the mechanisms of Mycoplasma pneumoniae resistance to macrolides. The article details the mechanisms of excessive immune response, as well as current world standards for the diagnosis and treatment of pneumonia.
