Fatal disseminated scotochromogenic mycobacteriosis in a child



American Review of Respiratory Disease 96(4): 795-801

A fatal case of disseminated mycobacterial disease is presented in a child, caused by an atypical scotochromogenic mycobacterium of the Gause serotype. Dissemination was probably favored by the prolonged administration of corticosteroid drugs for eczema and for thrombopenia. Skin tests with OT [old tuberculin] and scotochromogenic tuberculin were repeatedly negative, even when corticosteroid medications were discontinued. Histologically, the reticuloendothelial system contained numerous large, bacteria-filled macrophages originally mistaken for lipid storage cells. Typical tubercles and giant cells were absent.
