Has an obligate parasitic lifestyle. Completely lacks a cell wall; it is surrounded only by a cytoplasmic membrane. The etiologic agent of primary atypical pneumonia, it has also been implicated in both upper and lower respiratory tract infections, including tracheobronchitis, bronchitis and bronchiolitis. Additionally, it is widely accepted that infection with this organism can result in a variety of extrapulmonary sequelae including septic arthritis, hemolytic anemia, dermatological, renal, central nervous system and cardiac complications. As a surface parasite, it attaches to the host's respiratory epithelium by means of a differentiated terminal structure, the attachment organelle. Cytadherence is mediated by the highly abundant P1 protein (adapted from PMID 16678382).
