Mycoplasma pneumoniae induced rash and mucositis (MIRM) is a distinct entity of erythema multiforma spectrum. Observation: we report a case of a 19-year-old man hospitalised for multiple mucosal eruptions and hyperthermia for three days, in context of a pro-T lymphoblastic leukemia in complete cytological and molecular remission. Discussion: MIRM is a skin split of 0% – 10% body surface area, at least two mucosal sites involved, few skins including vesiculobullous or atypical targets and evidence of atypical pneumonia. Identification of MP is essential for the correct diagnosis of MIRM and even more differentiation of EM associated with herpes simplex virus and drug-associated. Conclusion: MIRM has a good prognosis with rare recurrence and seldom complications.
