A macrolide or tetracycline is usually effective as first-line treatment of mycoplasma infections in both uncomplicated and more severe community-acquired pneumonia. A fluoroquinolone antibiotic may be considered as second-line treatment if previous antibiotics fail. Treatment period is for a minimum of 10-14 days. (1)
