In this paper, the compressible magnetohydrodynamic system with some smallness and symmetry assumptions on the time periodic external force is considered in $\mathbb{R}^3$. Based on the uniform estimates and the topological degree theory, we prove the existence of a time periodic solution in a bounded domain. Then by a limiting process, the result in the whole space $\mathbb{R}^3$ is obtained.
