Hypercalcaemia secondary to disseminated Mycobacterium abscessus and Mycobacterium fortuitum

The incidence and prevalence of nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) infection is on the rise with many cases still going unreported. Given the vague and nonspecific clinical features of NTM infections, it is often missed or mistaken for Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The presumption that NTM infections are benign and do not contribute to morbidity no longer holds true.
