Mycobacterium Infections/Tuberculosis

With the exception of tuberculosis, mycobacterium infections are uncommon. Typically, this bacteria does not tend to cause infection in healthier people. However, this is not the case for those with a weakened immune system. This makes Mycobacterium Infections a higher risk for those suffering with HIV/AIDS.
