Mycobacterium kumamotonense in the cervical region in an immunocompetent patient, clinical case report in Mexico

We present the case of a 25-year-old male patient, immunocompetent, with cervical lymphadenopathy, identifying Mycobacterium kumamotonense, a rare species in extrapulmonary forms and with a high drug resistance index.
