Incidence rate of nontuberculous mycobacterial disease in immunocompetent children a prospective nationwide surveillance study in Germany
Heiden, Matthias an der
Kries, Rüdiger von
An increasing incidence in disease caused by nontuberculous mycobacteria is being reported. We investigated the burden of disease in immunocompetent German children in a prospective nationwide study from April 2003 to September 2005. Ninety-seven percent of children presented with lymphadenitis; median age was 2.5 years. Using the capture-recapture method, we estimated a cumulative incidence rate of 3.1/100000 children.
