Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A unique case is presented in which disseminated Mycobacterium chelonae ssp. abscessus was found in a normal immunocompetent host after a traumatic injury. Although disseminated disease is known to occur in immunocompromised and postsurgical patients, this case is unusual in that it occurred in a patient with no evidence of immunodeficiency and with a known portal of entry.
