Abstract

Mycobacterium gordonae is a slow growing, pigmented, nontuberculous mycobacterium. It is commonly associated with environmental contamination of clinical specimens, but it is also a recognized pathogen in immunocompromised hosts. We describe an immunocompetent child with a spontaneously occurring skin ulcer on the face caused by M. gordonae infection.
