Abstract

Mycobacterium chelonei is in the family of fast-growing atypical mycobacteria. Clinical infection can have varying presentations. We present a case of a nonhealing thigh abscess that grew Mycobacterium chelonei on culture. The clinical presentations and causes of Mycobacterium chelonei infections are reviewed, along with current treatment options.
