A case of Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare pulmonary disease and Crohn's disease

We report a case of pulmonary Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare (MAI) in a previously fit 48-year-old man who subsequently developed Crohn's disease. We discuss the potential predisposing factors for pulmonary MAI; the diagnostic uncertainties in this particular case; the relationship between pulmonary MAI and Crohn's disease; and the difficulties in management that are highlighted by this case.
