A 65-year-old healthy woman presented with persistent, asymptomatic sterile pyuria detected by her family physician. While she did not have symptoms, the patient recounts that she has had cloudy urine for years. Cultures of the urine for bacteria showed no growth and no fungi were identified. First-morning urine samples were sent for both tuberculosis and nontuberculosis mycobacterium species testing. The culture grew genotypically identified Mycobaterium avium complex (MAC). Mantoux skin testing was positive...

Mycobacterium infections involving tuberculosis in the foot are rare but cases are readily available in published studies. Atypical or nontuberculosis mycobacterium foot infections are rare, especially those involving the soft tissue and bone, and have been infrequently reported. To date, no case reports involving atypical mycobacterium infection after elective foot surgery have been reported. We present the case of a 49-year-old female who underwent flatfoot reconstruction, with a resultant Mycobacterium chelonae-abscessus infection and osteomyelitis postoperatively...

Microscopy of direct smear with the Ziehl-Neelsen stain is still broadly used in tuberculosis diagnosis. However, this method suffers from low specificity and is difficult to distinguish Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) from nontuberculosis mycobacterial (NTM), since all mycobacterial species are positive in Ziehl-Neelsen stain. In this study, we utilized whole cell SELEX to obtain species-specific aptamers for increasing the specificity of MTB detection. Whole cell SELEX was performed in MTB reference strain H37Rv by two selection processes based on enzyme-linked plate or Eppendorf tube, respectively...

INTRODUCTION: Tuberculosis is still one of the most important health problems in developing countries and increasing drug resistance is the main concern for its treatment. This study was designed to characterize the drug resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolated from patients suffering from pulmonary tuberculosis in northeast of Iran. METHOD: In this cross-sectional study during 2012-2013, drug susceptibility testing was performed on Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolated in northeast of Iran using proportional method...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the resolution and reliability of the rpsA gene, encoding ribosomal protein S1, as a novel biomarker for mycobacteria species identification. METHODS: A segment of the rpsA gene (565 bp) was amplified by PCR from 42 mycobacterial reference strains, 172 nontuberculosis mycobacteria clinical isolates, and 16 M. tuberculosis complex clinical isolates. The PCR products were sequenced and aligned by using the multiple alignment algorithm in the MegAlign package (DNASTAR) and the MEGA program...

Among nontuberculosis mycobacteria (NTM), rapidly growing mycobacteria (RGM) are the most common causative agents of soft tissue infection. Mycobacterium massiliense, a new species of NTM, was isolated in 2004. Due to the lower virulence of RGM, M. massiliense infection is rare in the general population. Here, we report a case of multiple infective panniculitis, due to M. massiliense, mimicking erythema induratum in a patient with Cushing syndrome. The organism was identified using traditional mycobacterial culturing and staining methods as well as molecular approaches, including erythromycin ribosome transferase gene polymerase chain reaction...

OBJECTIVES: To identify mycobacterial species in bronchoscopy specimens with a simple assay based on polymerase chain reaction and restriction enzyme digestion. METHODS: Sputum smear negative, bronchoscopy specimens (n=202) were collected from patients attending the Central Chest Clinic and the Teaching Hospital Kandy, Sri Lanka. DNA, extracted from the mycobacterial cultures (n=43) were amplified using known mycobacterial specific Sp1 and Sp2 primers. Resulting products were digested with HaeIII and CfoI restriction enzymes and DNA sequencing was performed for the selected isolates...

External quality assessment (EQA) for the Xpert MTB/RIF assay is part of the quality system required for clinical and laboratory practice. Five newly developed EQA panels that use different matrices, including a lyophilized sample (Vircell, Granada, Spain), a dried tube specimen (CDC), liquid (Maine Molecular Quality Control, Inc. [MMQCI], Scarborough, ME), artificial sputum (Global Laboratory Initiative [GLI]), and a dried culture spot (National Health Laboratory Services [NHLS]), were evaluated at 11 GeneXpert testing sites in South Africa...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and nontuberculosis mycobacterium (NTM) disease. METHODS: We used data from the National Health Insurance Research Database of Taiwan in this study. The NTM cohort contained 3,005 patients, and each case was randomly frequency matched by age, sex, income, occupation, and index year with four people from the general population without NTM infections...

Different subtypes of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) may induce diverse severe human infections, and some of their symptoms are similar to other pathogenes, e.g. Nontuberculosis mycobacteria (NTM). So determination of mycobacterium subtypes facilitates the effective control of MTB infection and proliferation. This study exploits a novel DNA barcoding visualization method for molecular typing of 17 mycobacteria genomes published in the NCBI prokaryotic genome database. Three mycobacterium genes (Rv0279c, Rv3508 and Rv3514) from the PE/PPE family of MT Band were detected to best represent the inter-strain pathogenetic variations...
