Introduction: In recent years, chronic and persistent bacterial infections are introduced as predisposing factors of acute myocardial infarction (MI) that is a main cause of health problems, worldwide. In this study, the relationship between previous my-coplasma pneumonia infection and further myocardial infarction was investigated through seropositivity rate of mycoplasma pneumonia in patients with (MI) and control group. Materials & Methods: In this retrospective descriptive study, 374 sera of patients and 185 sera of control group were examined by a commercial quantitative specific myco-plasma pneumonia IgG-ELISA kit (EUR-OIMMUNE, Germany) simultanously. The results were analyzed by Qui square test in SPSS, Ver. 16 software. Findings: We found no significant rela-tionships between seropositivity to myco-plasma pneumonia (IgG) and sex (P=0.080), age (P=0.700), occupation (P=0.080), and living place (P=0.150), but the relationship between history of previous acute febrile diseases, infective chest disea-ses, hypertension and MI with mycoplasma pneumonia was significant (P=0.003, P=0.004, P=0.003, P=0.003 consequently). Discussion & Conclusion: Regarding the results of this study, it can be said that history of previous mycoplasma pneumonia infections can be considered one of the etiological agents in MI.
