Abstract

belongs to the complex (MTBC). It can cause pulmonary and extrapulmonary tuberculosis in humans. Compared to , which is the most prevalent subspecies of the MTBC, infection has a different etiology. Moreover, establishing the diagnosis with conventional bacteriology can be difficult. We will illustrate this with a case of an extrapulmonary tuberculosis of the hip caused by in an immunocompetent patient in The Netherlands.
