Abstract

Mycobacterium gordonae is historically viewed as an organism with low pathogenic potential, but it has increasingly become implicated in clinical disease in immunocompromised hosts. Illness related to M. gordonae infection ranges from localized infections to rare cases of disseminated disease. This report describes treatment of the first case of occult M. gordonae bacteremia in an adolescent with AIDS.
