Management of opportunist mycobacterial infections: Joint Tuberculosis Committee guidelines 1999

Author(s)Subcommittee of the Joint Committe of the BTS
AbstractGuidelines have been produced for tuberculosis by the British Thoracic Society (BTS), the American Thoracic Society (ATS), the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease, and the World Health Organisation. These, however, deal mainly with Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex infections (M tuberculosis, M africanum, and M bovis). With the exception of the ATS guidelines on non-tuberculous mycobacteria, these do not address the opportunist mycobacteria (also called atypical mycobacteria, mycobacteria other than tuberculosis (MOTT), non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM), or environmental mycobacteria).
