In brief: Mycoplasma

Igg indicates he was previously exposed to mycoplasma and he has mounted an immune response to it, how is his igm ? This one indicates an active infection.

In brief: Suggests past infctn

Igg is a later phase antibody produced in response to a illness or infection by a specific agent.
Igm would be an early phase (first weeks). A higher than expected igg level to this agent suggests the kid had a significant encounter with mycoplasma, an agent well known to cause pneumonia in kids.
