Abstract

Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a pathogen involved in the etiology of respiratory processes, but also in other extrapulmonary entities, including “Mycoplasma induced-rash and mucositis”, first described in 2015. Two clinical cases of a 5-year-old girl and a 6-year-old boy admitted to our hospital with this entity are presented. As it is a recently described and infrequent diagnosis, its knowledge by pediatricians, ophthalmologists and dermatologists is necessary for proper management.
