Abstract

Myelopathy is a well recognised but rare association with Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection, but has not been described with atypical mycobacteria. We report two cases of disabling myelopathy in association with pulmonary infection by Mycobacterium kansasii and Mycobacterium malmoense; the myelopathy is presumed to be a para-infectious phenomenon.
