Mycobacterial Infections: Still a Millennium Bug – the Imaging Features of Mycobacterial Infections Academic Article uri icon


  • Mycobacterial infection is re-emerging as a major health care concern. Although Mycobacterium tuberculosis(MTB) is still the most important pathogen, atypical mycobacterium (AMB) infections are becoming increasingly common.

Imaging similarities and differences between the normal and the immunocompromised host will be highlighted.
