Pathology Atypical

Mycobacterial Infection

Dr Sampurna Roy MD

 

                                                                                                                      

 

Atypical mycobacterial infection is caused by a type of mycobacterium other than Tuberculosis.

Mycobacteria other than Mycobacterium tuberculosis are widely distributed in nature and infrequently cause disease though several species are potentially pathogenic.

The widely used classification of Runyon based on pigment production and growth rate has been superseded by classifications in which the organisms are grouped according to biochemical and antigenic similarities.

The major pathogenic groups include the following:

1. Slow-growing potential pathogens:

i) Mycobacterium Avium Intracellulare

ii) Mycobacterium Kansasii

iii) Mycobacterium Marinum

iv) Mycobacterium Ulcerans

2. Rapidly growing potential pathogens:

i) Mycobacterium fortuitum

ii) Mycobacterium chelonei
