BACKGROUND Hypersensitivity pneumonitis has been described with exposure to aerosolized Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) in indoor hot tubs (hot tub lung). OBJECTIVES To describe a case of MAC-associated hypersensitivity pneumonitis-like reaction possibly from showering and review previous hot tub lung reports. METHODS For the case report, we investigated a patient with histologically diagnosed hypersensitivity pneumonitis and MAC-positive sputum culture findings. Mycobacterial cultures… Expand
