Abstract

Tuberculosis remains one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the world. The major causes of pulmonary and extrapulmonary tuberculosis are Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex but we can find in same studies a tuberculosis caused by nontuberculosis mycobacteria.
In Tunisia, few studies were established aiming to explain Human tuberculosis epidemiology, in order to contribute in Data explaining tuberculosis epidemiology, a study during 7 years was done in central of Tunisia, in health care center of FRHAT HACHED, Sousse region Tunisia. In this study Four nontuberculous mycobacteria were isolated and characterized using rpoB sequencing.
Here, we describe the first isolations of Mycobacterium novocastrense, Mycobacterium duvalii, Mycobacterium flavescens and Mycobacterium elephantis isolated from sputum implicated in human pulmonary tuberculosis
