Abstract

Objective: Lower respiratory tract infections are one of the major causes of morbidity and mortality in children worldwide. Besides, epidemiological data on this subject is very limited. Mycoplasma pneumoniae is an important bacterial agent in community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) and may cause mild, moderate and severe lower respiratory tract infections. Clinical diagnosis is very difficult.
