Abstract

is among the opportunist pathogens of atypical mycobacteria emergence (atypical mycobacteria) that is one of the isolated and reported environmental and clinical specimens. Numerous cases of osteo-articular infections of this bacterium are reported nowadays, while the pulmonary infection is rare. We identified in non-healing wound infection of an elderly woman with history of diabetes mellitus. She has negative tests for HIV, HBV and HCV, but was positive for HTLV-1. The patient was referred according to mild-fever, non-healing, destructive, and swelled lesion on her left foot. The mycobacterial wounds infection was suspected due to her non-conclusive previous treatment. The pathology, acid-fast staining, conventional and 16S rRNA sequencing confirmed the micro-organism to be . Finally, the patient recovered following two-week consumption of clarithromycin, ethambutol and rifabutin. The results of this study provide evidence on the potential pathogenicity, clinical outcomes and treatment of infections caused by this bacterium.
