Abstract
Mycobacterium scrofulaceum is one of the slowly growing scotochromogenic non-tuberculous mycobacterium. In adult, the clinical manifestations of M. scrofulaceum infections include pulmonary disease, hepatitis, osteomyelitis, and cutaneous infection. Herein, we report a rare case of disseminated M. scrofulaceum infection in a patient with lymphoma. The patient had the M. scrofulaceum infections that involved lung and joint, and the clinical condition responded to antimycobacterial agent and surgical debridement well.

Key words: Mycobacterium scrofulaceum, non-tuberculous mycobacterium, disseminated infection, lymphoma, chemotherapy, immunocompromised
