Abstract

Mycobacterium fortuitum was implicated as the cause of pulmonary disease resembling tuberculosis in a 65 yr old Nigerian farmer. The apparent lack of person to person spread and low degree of clinical virulence despite continued presence in the sputum of large numbers of acid fast bacilli despite antituberculous chemotherapy, as demonstrated in this patient, are often distinguishing features of disease caused by M. fortuitum.
