Arch Dermatol. 1977;113(8):1067-1068. doi:10.1001/archderm.1977.01640080069009

• 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.
