BACKGROUND: Clinical relevance of nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) is increasing worldwide including in Saudi Arabia. A high species diversity of NTM's has been noticed in a recent study. However, the identification in diagnostic laboratories is mostly limited to common species. The impact of NTM species diversity on clinical outcome is so far neglected in most of the clinical settings. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: During April 2014 to September 2015, a nationwide collection of suspected NTM clinical isolates with clinical and demographical data were carried out...

Methodical prerequisites to the differentiation of mycobacteria using thin-layer chromatography of their lipids described. The results of the identification of 112 strains belonging to 22 different species of Runyon's groups II, and III and IV are presented indicating that the lipid analysis permits the subdivision of mycobacteria into more species than with usual culture and biochemical methods. The technique even permits to differentiate between serotypes. In M. fortuitum strains several characteristic lipid patterns can be clearly distinguished, supporting the old opinion that different species are collected in the M...
