About this section
NIH Rare Diseases:46 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 mycobacterium kansasii and mycobacterium chelonae. An important gene associated with Mycobacterium Fortuitum is HSPD1 (Heat Shock Protein Family D (Hsp60) Member 1), and among its related pathways are Legionellosis and SIDS Susceptibility Pathways. Affiliated tissues include skin, lung and bone.
