Abstract

Tuberculosis is highly prevalent in our country and nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) are frequently found in respiratory specimens recently. A 65-year-old woman was admitted with complaints of fever, cough, weight loss, and hemoptysis. On the patient's chest radiography an upper lobe cavity in both lungs and consolidation was detected. Acid-fast bacilli 4+ were observed in smear of sputum and culture results M. intracellulare and M. tuberculosis were observed together. The patient's treatment was arranged. Through this case, we want to emphasize that tuberculosis and nontuberculous mycobacterial disease can coexist.
