NIH Rare Diseases:42 Mycobacterium fortuitum is a nontuberculous mycobacterium, which is a bacteria that can cause lung disease resembling tuberculosis, lymphadenitis, skin disease, or disseminated disease (infection that spreads to the bloodstream and other parts of the body). it occurs worldwide and is usually found in natural and processed water, sewage, and dirt. it is uncommon for this condition to cause lung disease. but mycobacterium fortuitum can cause local skin disease, osteomyelitis (inflammation of the bone), joint infections, and eye disease after trauma. it is a rare cause of lymphadenitis. disseminated disease usually occurs because of severe immosuppression, especially aids. last updated: 4/12/2011

MalaCards based summary: Mycobacterium Fortuitum, also known as mycobacterium fortuitum infection, is related to pneumonia and meningitis. An important gene associated with Mycobacterium Fortuitum is IL12RB1 (interleukin 12 receptor, beta 1), and among its related pathways are Allograft rejection and Cytokine production by Th17 cells in CF. The compounds doxycycline and moxifloxacin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, lung and bone.
