Mycoplasma is the smallest living-free organism in the nature. It is an important and common cause of respiratory infections. It mainly affects children more than 5 years of age and younger adult causing disease of varied severity of illness from asymptomatic or upper respiratory infection to severe pneumonias. Hemolytic anemia is known as a rare but severe complication of Mycoplasma infection.
