Mycobacterium marinum is a nontuberculous mycobacteria that is often acquired via contact with contaminated salt or fresh water. We present a case of a 67-year-old man who developed several solitary nontender nodules on his hands and forearm after working on the underside of his boat. In addition, we provide a review of the literature and discuss how this infection is acquired, the underlying pathogenesis, the cutaneous and histologic findings, the differential diagnosis, the diagnostic methods, and the various treatment options.
