Abstract

Cutaneous and subcutaneous infections by Mycobacterium fortuitum are caused by colonisation of the tissue following accidental trauma, injection of drugs (cortisone), mesotherapy, surgical procedures or domestic animal bites. M. fortuirum is only occasionally associated with primary cutaneous infections in immunocompetent people. Rarely disseminated infection with only cutaneous manifestations can occur in immunocompromised patients or in debilitating conditions (e.g. diabetes).
