Nontuberculous mycobacterial infections are increasing and are challenging to diagnosis and treat. Recent studies have documented significant increases in the incidence and prevalence of pulmonary NTM infections. The reasons for the increases are not well understood but environmental exposures are thought to be the source for most infections. Person to person transmission has been described and there are new insights into the pathogenesis of these infections. The mycobacterial laboratory is evolving from phenotypic to genotypic testing so clinicians must become familiar with these new testing strategies. New drugs, re-purposed drugs, and inhaled delivery are changing our approach to treatment.
