Abstract

The group of mycobacterial species that excludes Mycobacteria tuberculosis and Mycobacteria leprae is known as nontuberculosis or atypical mycobacteria. Nearly all atypical mycobacteria species can cause cutaneous infection. The diagnosis is challenging as disease may take months to become clinically apparent, morphology is non-specific, routine culture has a low sensitivity, and organisms can be sparse on histopathologic examination. Antibiotic resistance and further complicates management. The Gulf Coast is the highest incidence region of cutaneous atypical mycobacterial infections. Here we present a challenging case of bilateral sporotrichoid atypical mycobacterial infection due to primary inoculation.
