摘要

This report describes an unusual strain of Mycobacterium avium complex isolated from the sputum of an immunocompromised AIDS patient, which did not react with the MAC probe of the BDProbe Tec system, but was identified as Mycobacterium intracellulare by 16S rRNA gene sequencing. Its PCR restriction-enzyme analysis pattern was compatible with an allelic variant of M. avium. It was scotochromogenic, slow-growing and phenotypically identified as Mycobacterium scrofulaceum. Its clinical significance is not certain.
