1/3. bursitis due to Mycobacterium goodii, a recently described, rapidly growing mycobacterium.

    We report a case of olecranon bursitis due to Mycobacterium goodii in a 60-year-old man. Prior to recognition of his infection, he received intrabursal steroids and underwent olecranon bursectomy. His infection was cured with antimicrobial therapy consisting of doxycycline and ciprofloxacin. This case illustrates that previously unrecognized members of the mycobacterium smegmatis group of mycobacteria have pathogenic potential.

2/3. Mycobacterial prepatellar bursitis.

    Prepatellar bursitis secondary to infection with an atypical mycobacterium developed in an 88-year-old man. A review of all previously reported cases in the English literature indicates tuberculosis is important in the differential diagnosis of prepatellar bursitis.

3/3. Nontuberculous mycobacterial bursitis and arthritis of the shoulder.

    A 56-year-old woman with systemic lupus erythematosus developed septic arthritis and bursitis of the left shoulder due to an atypical mycobacterium, M. xenopi. Plain radiography, ultrasound (US), and MRI were performed. Articular disease by tuberculous and nontuberculous mycobacteria have similar presentations, clinically as well as radiologically, and have to be differentiated from other chronic bacterial or fungal infections, pigmented villonodular synovitis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, hemophilia, and synovial chondromatosis. Although atypical mycobacterial involvement of the skeleton and soft tissues is relatively uncommon, its incidence is increasing, as is the incidence of extrapulmonary tuberculosis in western countries. The triad of Phemister is reemphasized, and the US and MRI findings are demonstrated. The definitive diagnosis has to be made by culturing biopsied synovium or synovial fluid.
