Mycoplasma oh Mycosplasma

My son already fever for 1 week, start from Last Friday (24 July 2015).

His temperature range from 38.5 to 39.5.

So I bring him to do a blood test on Friday 31 July at Columbia Asia Cheras.

Doctor suspect 3 scenario:

1) Denggi

2) Viral Infection

3) Bacteria Infection

His blood test Positive for Bacteria Infection called Mycoplasma.

Full Blood Count:

  • low haemoglobin – indicates anaemia, which has a number of possible causes, including internal bleeding or a poor diet - my son 9.5 g/dl normal is 11.5 to 14.5, my son obviously is poor diet, he loss his appetite

  • a high white blood cell count – which usually suggests you have an infection somewhere in your body or, rarely, could be a sign of leukaemia - 24x10^3 (normal is 6-15) - infection

  • a high platelet count – which may be caused by inflammatory conditions, infection or a problem with the bone marrow - my son 562x10^3 ( normal 150-450) infection

What is Mycoplasma?

Mycoplasma is a genus of bacteria that lack a cell wall around their cell membrane.[1] Without a cell wall, they are unaffected by many common antibiotics such as penicillin or other beta-lactam antibiotics that target cell wall synthesis.
