CAR bacillus in bronchopneumonia
Photo 1:
The bronchopneumonia from CAR bacillus infection is similar to that of mycoplasmosis. The right middle lobe appears to be the most commonly affected site.

Photo 2:
Peribronchiolar lymphoid hyperplasia with transmucosal lymphocyte migration as in mycoplasmosis is suggestive of CAR bacillus. Silver stains and immunofluorescent techniques will demonstrate the organism (arrow) in tissues.
