Mycobacterium abscessus infection after cosmetic breast surgery in India
A 36-year-old Danish woman underwent cosmetic breast surgery in India. Post-operatively, she presented with infection and ulcers under the breasts, and dicloxacillin was administered. The patient did not return for follow-up. Two years later the ulcer under the right breast had not healed, and the patient returned to hospital, where a wound culture was done.
