Antimicrobial susceptibility of nontuberculous mycobacteria from eye infections
Brown–Elliott BA et al. – This is the largest study of NTM ophthalmic isolates to date and is the first to include susceptibilities and molecular identification for all isolates studied. This series establishes M. chelonae (44%) and M. abscessus (37%) as the NTM species most frequently associated with ophthalmic infections. Topical ophthalmic fluoroquinolones may have a role in the management of ocular infections involving M. chelonae and M. fortuitum.
