Mycobacterium Gordonae

Common Name(s)

Mycobacterium Gordonae

Mycobacterium gordonae is found everywhere, including in soil, water, milk, healthy mucous membranes, and urine, but is most well-known for being in tap water. M. gordonae does not usually cause harmful infections for humans but may do so if a person has a very weak immune system (their bodies are not good at fighting off infections). There is no established recommended treatment for mycobacterium gordonae, however different antibiotics are usually given if there is a rare infection of the bacteria.
