Özet

Objective: One of the most common extra pulmonary diseases of Mycoplasma pneumoniae is neurologic disorders. It may cause neurological diseases such as meningitis, meningoencephalitis, cerebellitis, polyneuropathy, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), stroke, transverse myelitis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, myasthenia gravis (MG), peripheral neuropathy. Although the pathogenesis of M. pneumoniae-associated neurological diseases cannot be fully elucidated, it is thought to be mediated by immune mediated or direct invasion of the microorganism. In this study, nine children with M. pneumoniae associated different neurological involvement were presented.
