Thirty-one cases of culturally proved infection with Mycobacterium marinum were studied during the past six years in the New Orleans area. Clinical and epidemiologic data were obtained and treatment was prescribed. Four mycobacterial antigens were used in skin testing and the results were compared with similar testing of a group of young adults and a group of patients with pulmonary tuberculosis.
