Chronic breast abscess due
to Mycobacterium fortuitum: a case report
Mycobacterium fortuitum is a rapidly growing group of nontuberculous mycobacteria more
common in patients with genetic or acquired causes of immune deficiency. There
have been few published reports of Mycobacterium fortuitum associated
with breast infections mainly associated with breast implant and reconstructive
We report a case of a 51-year-old
Caucasian woman who presented to our one-stop breast clinic with a two-week
history of left breast swelling and tenderness. Following triple assessment and
subsequent incision and drainage of a breast abscess, the patient was diagnosed
with Mycobacterium fortuitum and treated with antibiotic
therapy and surgical debridement.
This is a rare case of a
spontaneous breast abscess secondary to Mycobacterium fortuitum infection.
Recommended treatment is long-term antibacterial therapy and surgical
debridement for extensive infection or when implants are involved.
