1/4. Severe sporotrichoid infection with Mycobacterium szulgai.

    Mycobacterium szulgai is a nontuberculous, acid-fast bacillus or atypical mycobacteria, which prior to 1972 was not thought of as a pathogen. Since then most cases reported in the literature have been of pulmonary disease with only a few case reports of cutaneous disease. Our patient, who had an underlying, uncategorized, immunosuppressive condition, presented with multiple severe ulcers spreading proximally up the arms in a sporotrichoid pattern with more scatttered lesions on his legs. He made a full recovery with appropriate antimicrobial treatment.

2/4. A solitary tuberculous ulcer in the oesophagus.

    A 48-year-old woman born in pakistan was evaluated for dysphagia. endoscopy showed a solitary ulcerative oesophageal lesion. Cultures were positive for mycobacterium tuberculosis. Additional imaging showed no other manifestations of tuberculosis. Oesophageal tuberculosis is a rare entity, especially as a primary manifestation defined as involvement of the oesophagus without signs of disseminated disease. Therefore, this case was classified as primary oesophageal tuberculosis.

3/4. Oral mycobacterium avium complex infection in a patient with hiv-related disease. A case report.

    mycobacterium avium complex infection is a common complication of the later stages of AIDS. Although a recognized cause of oral lesions, atypical mycobacteria are rarely detected in AIDS-related oral ulceration. Here we report a case of oral ulceration in a patient in the later stages of AIDS in which atypical mycobacteria were detected both histologically and microbiologically. The features of this case are similar to the one other case previously reported permitting some characterization and comparison of the clinical features of mycobacterium avium complex infection in AIDS.

4/4. Oral manifestation of disseminated mycobacterium kansasii infection in a patient with AIDS.

    We report the case of a 46-year-old male patient with advanced hiv infection who developed an oral ulcer caused by mycobacterium kansasii. It is the first description of an aphthous-like ulcer caused by this nontuberculous mycobacterium. As the AIDS epidemy is still growing, more cases might be observed and the current spectrum of differential diagnosis should be expanded.
