Özet

Mycobacterium lentiflavum is a recently described nontuberculous mycobacterium that has mainly clinical importance in young children with cervical lymphadenitis and in immunocompromised patients. We report here, along with a further case of diffused pulmonary nodules in a 12-year-old boy, the first isolations from bronchoalveolar lavage culture with hyper-IgE recurrent infection syndrome from Turkey.
