[Pulmonary Mycobacterium abscessus sensu lato infection in patients without cystic fibrosis].

Abstract : Infection with Mycobacterium abscessus sensu lato is uncommon in patients without cystic fibrosis. We are interested in these patients and have collected cases in Finistère between 2007 and 2011. Four patients met the infection criteria recommended by the American Thoracic Society in 2007. Among them, all had Aspergillus spp. in sputum, 3 had gastroesophageal reflux and two had the criteria for allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis. We identified Mycobacterium massiliense in the single patient in our series whose therapeutic outcome was successful. By comparing these data with those in the literature, we believe that the search for allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis and gastroesophageal reflux is necessary in these patients and that species identification is essential for prognosis.
