Abstract

Introduction: Nontuberculous Mycobacteria (NTM) infections have recently increased significantly in the world. Especially, lung diseases caused by various NTM are noteworthy. Susceptibility to antimicrobials can vary greatly by species, geographic region and time for NTMs. In this study, it was aimed to determine the resistance percentages of antimicrobials by performing drug susceptibility tests (DST) for NTM isolated from lower respiratory tract samples.
