Answer

The history typically suggests the type of infection present (eg, upper respiratory tract infection [URTI], lower respiratory tract infection [LRTI], bacteremia, or endocarditis). Physical findings in M catarrhalis infections are similar to findings of infections with other organisms in the same location.
