Abstract

In Finland, the situation with regard to tuberculosis has been constantly improving during recent years, and the WHO criteria for a low incidence country (10/100,000) are presently satisfied. In contrast, the number of clinical specimens yielding atypical mycobacteria by isolation has rapidly increased. Organisms belonging in Mycobaterium avium-intracellulare complex dominate among the isolated species.
