Bange, F C; Brown, B A; Smaczny, C; Wallace Jr, R J; Böttger, E C (2001). Lack of transmission of mycobacterium abscessus among patients with cystic fibrosis attending a single clinic. Clinical Infectious Diseases, 32(11):1648-1650.
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.
