Enferm Infecc Microbiol Clin. Nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) are bacteria in dust, soil, and water that can cause infections in different parts of the body including the lungs, skin and blood. Other species of NTM have been implicated in causing skin infections. There are a number of risk factors that may predispose someone to getting NTM lung disease. Clinically, cutaneous mycobacterial infections present with widely different clinical presentations, including cellulitis, nonhealing ulcers, subacute or chronic nodular lesions, abscesses, superficial lymphadenitis, verrucous lesions, and other types of findings.
