Abstract

Mycobacterium chelonae infection has not to our knowledge been reported as a complication of endogenous Cushing's syndrome. We describe a patient who presented with sporotrichoid M. chelonae infection and olecranon bursitis whose symptoms did not completely resolve until after bilateral adrenalectomy.
