ABSTRACT

We report a case of Mycobacterium colombiense in a human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive patient who presented with tender cervical lymphadenopathy that progressed to a fistulous tract. The identification, treatment, and management of infection with this pathogen are discussed. This represents the first case to our knowledge of infection with this organism in the United States.
