Imaging of Non-tuberculous (Atypical) Mycobacterial Pulmonary Infection.

Author information

Department of Radiology, Royal Brompton Hospital, London, U.K.


Pulmonary infections due to mycobacterial organisms are increasing in incidence. Non-tuberculous (atypical) mycobacteria (NTM) represent a significant proportion of mycobacterial infections and may prove difficult to diagnose due to their non-specific clinical and radiographic presentations. An increasing volume of radiological data is now available for the more common non-tuberculous mycobacterial infections, and we have summarized the imaging features found in such cases, identifying radiographic features that would favour the diagnosis of a non-tuberculous mycobacterium and that, in some cases, suggest a specific organism.
