After putting together clinical findings, special studies on tissues (if needed) and with microscope findings, the pathologist arrives at a definitive diagnosis, Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing of swabs of ulcers or tissue biopsies, to identify the specific mycobacterium, The complications of Atypical Mycobacterial Infections depend on the type of nontuberculous mycobacterial species causing the symptoms, Elderly adults or immunocompromised individuals (particularly those diagnosed with HIV infection or AIDS) are the most likely candidates to develop complications, which may be severe, More than one type of antibiotic is typically prescribed (usually 2 or 3), due to the relative antibiotic-resistant nature of nontuberculous mycobacterial pathogens, The treatment with antibiotic medications may continue for a year or more, until the lab culture results are negative, Curettage (scraping or scooping) of skin lesions, Surgery to remove skin lesions, infected lymph nodes, or infected lung tissue, Avoiding exposure to contaminated water, especially in pools or spas, Making sure to use disinfected needles or surgical tools, Washing/cleaning surgical tools with uncontaminated sources, Seeking proper treatment for pre-existing diseases and conditions that may result in a compromised immune system, With treatment, these infections can be cured successfully, Without treatment, Atypical Mycobacterial Infections can result in complications and further disease, depending on the type of nontuberculous mycobacteria infecting the body, The elderly and immunocompromised individuals, such as those with HIV infection and AIDS, are especially vulnerable to such complications, The most common manifestation of Atypical Mycobacterial Infections is lung disease, showing in 94% of cases, Lymphatic disease presents in roughly 3% of the cases, while skin, soft tissue, and disseminated disease makes up the other 3%, The most common Atypical Mycobacterial Infection associated with AIDS involves M. avium-intracellulare, also known as mycobacterium avium complex (MAC).
