Abstract

This study evaluates the prevalency of hematogenous dissemination of mycobacteria in 811 AIDS patients. One blood or bone marrow sample was collected for direct inoculation of the BACTEC 13A radiometric broth (Becton Dickinson Diagnostic Instrument Systems, Towson, USA). There were 7,3%. positive cultures (59 patients) with 11 (1,4%) Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare isolates and 39 (5%) Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates from which 11 (31,4%) were multidrug-resistant strains.
