Title: Guidelines for the control of nontuberculous mycobacteria in the Northern Territory
Authors: Department of Health
Issue Date: Oct-2002
Publisher: Centre for Disease Control
Abstract: NTM (non-tuberculous mycobacteria) occur naturally in the environment and are therefore often referred to as environmental mycobacteria. Most NTM organisms have been isolated from water and soil. NTM disease occurs in animals but transmission from animals to humans is felt not to be important in human infection. Human to human transmission is rare. This means public health measures such as isolation and contact tracing are not necessary with NTM disease.
