Abstract:

Many species are capable of causing infections in the immunocompromised individual, but and are among the most recognized pathogens in this genus. In broad terms, the mycobacteria are divided into the complex (MTBC) and the nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM). has long been recognized as a significant human pathogen, and much effort has been applied to the development of diagnostics for the detection of this organism. Historically, the NTMs garnered much less attention than MTBC, but they are now recognized to be important causes of human disease, especially in the immunocompromised host.
