Clinical and microbiologic aspects of mycobacteremia occurring in 11 patients are presented. Ten of the 11 patients were immunosuppressed. Disseminated disease was shown in 7 patients, transient bacteremia in 2, and endocarditis in 1. Blood cultures were positive in 11 blood culture systems. Newer blood culture systems appear to provide more rapid detection of mycobacteremia.
