Abstract
Mycoplasma pneumoniae is an important agent of the lower and upper respiratory system infections. It may re­sult in some complications and clinical conditions other than infections. Meningoencephalitis, encephalitis, trans­verse myelitis, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, cerebral infarction and Gullian-Barre syndrome are major neurological complications. We present here two cases with meningoencephalitis and Gullian-Barre syndrome secondary to Mycoplasma pneu­moniae infection.
