Abstract

The Mycobacterium terrae complex, consisting of three saprophytic species, M. terrae, M. nonchromogenicum, and M. triviale, rarely causes human disease. Only six cases of respiratory infection involving the complex have been documented worldwide. A case of primary pulmonary disease in a previously healthy young woman caused by M. terrae complex is described.
