Mycobacterium kansasii Infection With Dermatologic Manifestations

Mycobacterium kansasii Infection With Dermatologic Manifestations Abstract • A patient with cutaneous lesions as a manifestation of systemic infection with Mycobacterium kansasii is described. To our knowledge, this is the fourth reported case of a patient with dermatologic lesions secondary to M kansasii infection. A brief review of the classification and clinical presentations of atypical mycobacteria is given. (Arch Dermatol 112:706-708, 1976) References 1.
