Gas chromatography and high-performance liquid chromatography gave an identification of Mycobacterium abscessus
Infection with Mycobacterium abscessus

This report describes a 14-year-old asymptomatic female patient with CF with minimal bronchiectasis on high-resolution computed tomography scan of the chest who clinically deteriorated over the next 29 months after acquiring Mycobacterium abscessus
to the point of being listed for lung transplantation.
Multilocus sequence analysis and rpoB sequencing of Mycobacterium abscessus
(sensu lato) strains.
Nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) and, in particular, the Mycobacterium abscessus
group are recognized as emerging respiratory pathogens among patients with cystic fibrosis.
was first isolated from gluteal abscesses in a 62-year-old patient who had injured her knee as a child and had a disseminated infection 48 years later.
Phenotypic testing of isolates showed that arylsulfatase activity was positive at day 3 (weakly positive in 1 isolate); p-aminosalicylic acid degradation was positive, but the organism was also tolerant to 5% sodium chloride (results uncertain for 1 isolate); and iron uptake was positive, all of which are suggestive of Mycobacterium abscessus
