To assess the species distribution and epidemiologic trends of nontuberculous mycobacteria, we examined iso-lates from patients in Taiwan. During 2000–2008, the pro-portion increased signifi cantly from 32.3% to 49.8%. Asso-ciated disease incidence increased from 2.7 to 10.2 cases per 100,000 patients.
