Non-tuberculous mycobacteria are environmental bacteria and biofilm components. Contact with these bacteria is part of everyday life. Yet susceptible populations, like small children, patients with primary or secondary immunodeficiency, and those with underlying pulmonary disease, may develop clinically relevant disease. Diagnosis and treatment can be difficult, since data from controlled trials are scarce.
