ABSTRACT
Describes a case of a patient with bacteremia due to a growing scotochromogenic mycobacterium that does not belong to the Mycobacterium fortuitum complex or to any other growing species. Clinical features of the patient with bacteremia; Other diseases that have been caused by Mycobacterium fortuitum or Mycobacterium chelonei; Antimicrobial agents that are used to treat infections caused by rapidly growing mycobacteria.
