Abstract

Mycobacteria other than tuberculosis infections in patients taking various tumour necrosis factor (TNF)- inhibitors have been reported in the literature. We describe sporotrichoid spread of in a man with Crohn's disease treated with infliximab. After starting ethambutol and rifampicin and discontinuing infliximab, a worsening appeared. infection may have a potential local spread and systemic dissemination in patients treated with TNF- inhibitors.
