By using current NCCLS broth microdilution methods, we found that gatifloxacin inhibited 90% of Mycobacterium fortuitum group isolates (n=39) at <=0.12 micro g/ml, 90% of M. mucogenicum isolates (n=20) at <=0.25 micro g/ml, and 90% of M. chelonae isolates (n=32) at <=4 micro g/ml. Gatifloxacin can only inhibit 90% M. abscessus isolates (n=24) at >32 micro g/ml. Gatifloxacin was generally fourfold more active than ciprofloxacin.
