A prospective study using both polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and culture demonstrated the absence of Mycoplasma pneumoniae in the throats of 100 Jordanian adult patients with respiratory tract infections and 100 healthy controls over a period of 8 months (2003-2004). However, a retrospective study covering a period of 24 months (2003-2005) indicated that M. pneumoniae serological tests were only positive in 1/15 (7.1%) of adults and 4/29 (13.8%) of children among suspected infected patients. These results suggest that M. pneumoniae infection occurs rarely in Jordanian adults and may be attributed to the prevalence of dry weather for most of the year in Jordan.Key words: Mycoplasma pneumoniae, polymerase chain reaction, respiratory tract infections, Jordan
