Clinical and radiological deterioration due to Mycobacterium szulgai in an asthmatic patient
Keywords: Mycobacterium szulgai, non tuberculous mycobacteria, asthma
AbstractWe report the case of a 23-year-old asthmatic woman who had clinical and radiological deterioration due to Mycobacterium szulgai infection and good response to anti-mycobacterial treatment without any structural abnormalities in previous lung imaging studies. M. szulgai may be considered a pathogen able to cause deterioration of respiratory health even in patients with previously normal lungs.
