Mycobacterium fortuitum in abscesses of man TABLE


SYNOPSiS Myco. fortuitum was isolated from subcutaneous abscesses of two patients who had been inoculated with B.C.G. and one patient who had iron injections. The organisms were resistant to a wide range of anti-tuberculous drugs. They were highly virulent for mice in which they produced symptoms of spinning disease. It is thought that the infections originated from contamination of syringes or skin.
