Abstract

We report the first case of pulmonary disease caused by a strain of Mycobacterium avium complex of presumed veterinary origin in an elderly patient. All serial isolates were identified by multilocus sequence analysis based on rpoB, hsp65, and 16S rRNA fragments. Disease persisted despite macrolide-based combination antibiotic therapy.
