We retrospectively analyzed 1062 respiratory specimens from 214 patients with cystic fibrosis, of whom 5 patients had 36 cultures positive for M. abscessus. Results of molecular typing demonstrated that each of these 5 patients carried a single unique strain (genotype), which suggests that it may not be necessary to segregate patients with CF who are colonized or infected with M. abscessus from those who are not.
