• A 53-year-old woman had multiple ulcerative skin lesions caused by Mycobacterium intracellulare. The original lesions had appeared on her face and upper part of her chest at least 11 years earlier and had progressed slowly to involve large areas of her head and trunk. This unusual skin infection demonstrates chronicity and destructiveness.
