Thrombotic Complications of Nose and Toe Associated With Mycoplasma pneumoniae Infection

Hakan Tuncer, Sakir Omur Hincal, Betul Cam


Thrombosis is a very rare complication of Mycoplasma pneumoniae (M. pneumoniae) infection. We report a case of a woman who has thrombotic complications associated with mycoplasma infection in distal body parts. A 79-year-old female patient applied to the emergency department with complaints of the pain and discoloration at the nose tip and distal toes of the feet. Those symptoms have occurred in 10 days after the onset of the respiratory problems. The venous obstruction was diagnosed by venous Doppler ultrasound related to the distal part of the toes. The occurrence of the thrombosis associated with M. pneumoniae could be explained with some reaction of the inflammatory products in the blood circulation.
