MEDEROS, Lilian M. et al. Lymphadenitis caused by Mycobacterium malmoense in HIV infected patient . Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2004, vol.21, n.3, pp.229-231. ISSN 0716-1018.

We report the first Cuban case of mycobacteriosis caused by Mycobacterium malmoense in an HIV infected patient who developed submandibular ulcerative adenopathies. Culture of clinical samples yielded a non-pigmented, slowly growing mycobacteria strain that was classified in the Runyon Group I. The identification was complemented by biochemical tests and analysis of mycolic acid fractions

Keywords : Lymphadenitis; Mycobacterium malmoense; HIV infected patient; mycolic acids.
