Mycobacterium Abscessus

Common Name(s)

Mycobacterium Abscessus

Mycobacterium abscessus is a type of mycobacterium that contaminates water. M. abscessus can cause lung infections and infections of the skin. Infected tissue may become red, swollen, painful, and can develop pus-filled areas. Other symptoms include fever, muscle aches, and an overall feeling of illness. Mycobacterium abscessus infects people with weakened immune systems (the system in the body which helps to fight off various infections) as well as people with pre-existing lung problems most often.
