• Five cases of Mycobacterium marinum skin infections were successfully treated with 2 gm of tetracycline hydrochloride daily for periods from four to 12 weeks. In each case, the isolated M marinum was sensitive in vitro to tetracycline at levels from 25 to 50 μg/ml. Tetracycline is recommended as treatment for extensive or sporotrichoid M marinum infections.
