Although extrapulmonary manifestations of Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection are generally immune-mediated, disseminated infections occasionally occur. We describe a renal transplant recipient who developed disseminated pyogenic M. pneumoniae infection that was detected by broad-range polymerase chain reaction and that manifested by prosthetic arterial graft infection, psoas abscess, and septic arthritis.
