endobronchial atypical mycobacterial infection

In addition to Mycobacterium tuberculosis, other organisms such as non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) have emerged. These organisms cause a broad spectrum of pulmonary diseases.
Rare isolated endobronchial NTM infections in a child have been reported. (20425861)
