This new discovery on the survival mechanism of mycobacteria
could pave the way for new strategies to better fight communicable diseases such as tuberculosis.

Different molecular methods for the identification of rarely isolated non-tuberculous mycobacteria
and description of new hsp65 restriction fragment length polymorphism patterns.
Our patient with atypical mycobacteria
was successfully treated with surgical debridement and 6 months of anti-mycobacterial therapy, with 6 months of 2-drug therapy consisting of clarithromycin and rifampin.
The development and implementation of liquid culture system BACTEC MGIT 960 (Becton Dickinson's Mycobacterium growth Indicator Tube), is the most sensitive for recovery of mycobacteria
from clinical samples.6 The BACTEC MGIT 960 liquid culture system can shorten the time of recovery of mycobacteria
to approximately 10 to 14 days.7,8
Numerous studies show that the main reason for nonspecific reactions to tuberculin in cattle at satisfactory farmsteads are a typical mycobacteria
