mycobacterium simiae and mycobacterium avium-m. intracellulare mixed infection in acquired immune deficiency syndrome.acquired immune deficiency syndrome was diagnosed in a 43-year-old man, born and living in congo. the patient presented a disseminated infection caused by mycobacteria which were recovered from blood, jejunal fluid, and duodenal and rectal biopsies. identification, according to conventional tests and mycolate profile determination, showed that mycobacterium avium-m. intracellulare and m. simiae were both involved.19873793869
ocular manifestation of disseminated mycobacterium simiae infection in a cat.disseminated mycobacterial disease was diagnosed in an eight-year-old domestic shorthaired cat, with involvement of the skin, lungs, lymph nodes and one eye. mycobacterium simiae was cultured from skin biopsies on solid agar and in liquid media. this organism is known to cause pulmonary, cutaneous or disseminated infection in human patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome but has never been encountered as a pathogen in companion animals. combination treatment with rifampicin, enrofloxaci ...200312653327
refractory bacteremia and osteomyelitis resulting in fatal bacteremic pneumonia with multiorgan failure caused by mycobacterium simiae in a non-human immunodeficiency virus-infected adult.bacteremic pneumonia caused by mycobacterium simiae in non-human immunodeficiency virus (hiv)-infected patients has rarely been reported. we describe a non-hiv-infected adult with refractory bacteremia, osteomyelitis, and colonization of m. simiae in the respiratory tract who subsequently developed fatal bacteremic pneumonia. the isolate was confirmed as m. simiae by 16s rrna gene analysis.200919726604
about two cases of mycobacterium simiae infection in aids: review of the pathogenicity.mycobacterium simiae is an ubiquitous species rarely involved as a cause of human infection. its pathogenicity remains therefore unclear and controversial. disseminated infections with m. simiae occur rarely and only 7 cases have been reported in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (aids). at least, two were mixed infections caused by m. simiae and m. avium-intracellulare. we report the case of two aids patients presenting with pure m. simiae infections: one was a disseminated infec ...19989701858
gastrointestinal pathology in rhesus monkeys with experimental siv infection.the updated results of current pathomorphological investigations in siv-infected rhesus monkeys (macaca mulatta) are summarized. after experimental infection with several sivmac251 subtypes and various vaccination trails, 147 rhesus monkeys were morphologically examined until now. the pathology of the gastrointestinal tract in siv-infected animals resembled those of human cases with hiv and aids. alterations were considered to be primary siv-induced (siv enteropathy, giant cell disease) or secon ...19989693318
