Abstract

The authors report a case of cutaneous infection from Mycobacterium marinum transmitted by tropical fishes in a fish tank. The authors describe the lesions produced by mycobacterium in man and in fish, as well as the relevant histological findings and the microbiological enquiries carried out for isolation and typing. The possibility of direct transmission of a tubercular infection from fish to man has been demonstrated. The authors think careful sanitary control of the ichthyc fauna destined for domestic fish tanks is useful.
