Atypical pathogen, especially Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a common and important pathogen of community-acquired pneumonia. Physicians should pay more attention on them. Compared with bacteria, the clinical treatment of atypical pathogens is different, as beta-lactams are not effective for atypical pneumonia. Therefore, laboratory diagnostic methods and clinical biology research is particularly important for the diagnosis and treatment of atypical pneumonia. In order to provide more theoretical basis for clinical diagnosis of atypical pathogens infection, we performed a review of the research progress of prevalence, laboratory testing of atypical pathogens related infections.
