Mycobacterium abscessus bacteremia in an immunocompetent patient following a coronary artery bypass graft

Smita Sarma, Sunil Sharma, Usha K Baweja, Yatin Mehta.

Abstract
Sternal osteomyelitis with bacteremia due to Mycobacterium abscessus is rarely seen in immunocompetent
hosts. Routine pyogenic cultures in these cases are often negative causing a delay in diagnosis and treatment.
Clinicians and microbiologists should rule out the possibility of infection due to nontuberculous mycobacteria
while managing cases of nonhealing culture-negative wounds with conventional antibiotic therapy. We report
a case of bacteremia secondary to a nonhealing sternal wound due to M. abscessus. A combination of radical
debridement and prolonged antimicrobial therapy helped in the complete eradication of the infection.

Key words: Bacteremia, Mycobacterium abscessus, nontuberculous mycobacteria, sternal osteomyelitis
