nontuberculous mycobacterial infection in young children with cystic fibrosis.although nontuberculous mycobacteria (ntm) are recognized pathogens in adolescent and adult patients with cystic fibrosis (cf), the role of ntm in younger cf patients is not well-defined. to explore ntm infection in cf patients less than 12 years old, a retrospective review was performed. prevalence was estimated from routine mycobacterial cultures of bronchoalveolar lavage (bal) specimens collected over a 3-year period. ntm-positive cultures were obtained from 9 of 258 bals collected from 7 of ...200515858802

medicaid outpatient utilization for waterborne pathogenic illness following hurricane floyd.flooding provides an opportunity for epidemics of waterborne viral, protozoan, or bacterial diseases to develop in affected areas. epidemic levels of disease may translate into higher than average levels of health services use, depending in part on help-seeking behaviors. the authors investigated whether the flooding that occurred as a result of hurricane floyd in september 1999 was associated with an increase in outpatient visits for waterborne diseases among medicaid enrollees in eastern north ...200415313110
