Infection with non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) is relatively rare in areas that are high-endemic for tuberculosis. We identified 126 strains of NTM in respiratory specimens collected by the Chinese Nationwide Survey in 2000, the Beijing Tuberculosis and Thoracic Tumour Institution, and the Guangzhou Thoracic Hospital. Species diagnosis was attained by sequencing of 16S-rDNA complemented by phenotypic characterization when necessary. Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare-complex – well known as… Expand
