Summaries for Mycobacterium Fortuitum

NIH Rare Diseases : 53 Mycobacterium fortuitum is a bacteria that can cause infections of many areas of the body including the skin, lymph nodes, and joints. It belongs to a group of bacteria, known as nontuberculous mycobacterium, as it is different from the Mycobacterium that causes tuberculosis. It can be found in natural and processed water, sewage, and dirt. Healthy people usually do not get Mycobacterium fortuitum infections; however, they may occur after surgery, in people with an impaired immune system, or after exposure to a contaminated medical device (such as an endoscope). It is uncommon for this condition to cause lung disease, but Mycobacterium fortuitum infection can lead to skin disease, osteomyelitis (inflammation of the bone), joint infections, and eye disease. The signs and symptoms of infection differ depending on the infection site. Treatment also depends on the site of the infection, but usually includes prolonged use of antibiotics.

MalaCards based summary : Mycobacterium Fortuitum, also known as mycobacterium fortuitum infection, is related to nocardiosis and osteomyelitis. An important gene associated with Mycobacterium Fortuitum is HSPD1 (Heat Shock Protein Family D (Hsp60) Member 1), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Pathways in cancer and Th1 Differentiation Pathway. Affiliated tissues include skin, lung and bone.
