Abstract:

Mycoplasmas have been implicated in a variety clinical condition. However, our result determine only certain Mycoplasma pneumonia are disease associated with tonsils core and surfaces in patient range 3- 30 years ages. The result was depending on culture methods by using IH-modified medium. Nine of antimicrobial agent from commercial (Mycoplasma system plus) kits are available for the treatment of Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection in humans. The results was detected in 16.9% percentage patients, the existence of isolates was appear in core tonsil more than surface tonsil,, colonies appeared after (12-14) days at pH optimum 7.8, the majority of Mycoplasma pneumoniae were resistant highly percentage to macrolides like Azithromcin, Erytyromycin and Clarithyromcin, all the isolates of Mycoplasma pneumoniae were uniformly susceptible to Ofloxacin. In conclusion detection of Mycoplasma pneumoniae was possible by characteristic growth by IH-modified medium, and ofloxacin could be the drug of choice for Mycoplasma pneumoniae.
