Abstract

Two patients with Mycobacterium fortuitum and one patient with Mycobacterium chelonae lung infections were treated with ofloxacin and imipenem respectively. Of the former two, one had underlying inactive pulmonary tuberculosis and bronchiectasis and the other had silicosis. The latter had severe underlying bronchiectasis also. The treatments were well tolerated and the patients responded well.
