Abstract: The incidence and occurrence of Mycoplasma pneumoniae (=M. pneu.) pneumonia in patients who visited Nagasaki University Hospital were investigated during the 15-year period from 1968 to 1982. A total of 2754 selected patients with acute respiratory tract infection, including clinically primary atypical pneumonia (=PAP) (642 cases) were studied. Of these, 241 cases (37.5%) had M. pneu. pneumonia as diagnosed on the basis of four-fold or greater rises in specific antibody titers against M. pneu. for a titer of 1:64. Outbreaks occurred during 3-5 year periods including 1971-1972, 1975-1976, and 1980. Most cases were seen in April, May and August showing seasonal peaks in spring and early autumn. This incidence and occurrence of M. pneu. pneumonia in Nagasaki City and surrounding suburbs were compared to those reported in Norway, Finland, Denmark, United Kingdom, the Netherlands and various cities in both the United States and Japan. -Mycoplasma; Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection; Epidemiology .
