Tuberculosis and Nontuberculous Mycobacterial Infections

  • Joseph F. TomashefskiJr.
  • Carol F. Farver


Tuberculosis, a scourge of humankind through the ages, has undergone a global resurgence in the past two decades. Classically, the term tuberculosis refers to disease caused by organisms of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex, such as M. tuberculosis and M. bovis (Table 9.1).1 The most important disease in humans is produced by M. tuberculosis; infection due to M. bovis is mainly transmitted through the consumption of contaminated milk from infected cows, often presents as extrapulmonary disease, and has been virtually eliminated in developed countries by the pasteurization of milk.2
