چکیده
Mycobacterium simiae is an uncommon cause of puneumonia in immunocompromised host. We report a case of pulmonary infection due to M. simiae in an immunocompetent old woman who suffered from chronic cough. Based on positive sputum smear for acid-fast bacilli the disease was diagnosed as tuberculosis. Failure of response to antituberculous drugs resulted in further evaluation and identification of M. simiae by molecular method on sputum culture. M. simiae should be considered as a potential cause of lung disease in patients suspected to have tuberculosis but failed to respond to the antituberculosis therapy.
