Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia (MPP) is the most common type of childhood community-acquired pneumonia. MPP is generally mild and self-limiting, but a small percentage of patients still develop a refractory or severe clinical course. Imaging is an important tool for confirmed pneumonia, and it plays an important role in the diagnosis of MPP and assessment of the clinical course. However, imaging features of MPP reported in the literature vary in their patterns to distribution. A comprehensive and deep understanding of imaging findings of MPP in children is beneficial for an accurate diagnosis and guidance of its treatment.
