Abstract

is an environmental, nontuberculous mycobacteria found in fresh and salt water, causing disease in humans through traumatized skin. We describe a young, healthy South Pacific Islander with chronic, progressive large verrucous plaques on the left lower extremity, with cultures positive for . This morphology, distribution, and disease course is likely representative of an atypical presentation of infection in South Pacific Islanders.
