Definition

A slow-growing, photochromogenic species that is the etiologic agent of a tuberculosis-like disease in humans and is frequently isolated from human pulmonary secretions or tubercles; The incidence of infection is sharply increased among immunocompromised individuals; (Dorland, 28th ed); most common cause of atypical mycobacterium lung infection; more common in white males
