Following the recent report of new 16S rDNA sequences of Mycobacterium elephantis, three clinical strains suspected to belong to such species were investigated using biochemical and cultural tests, high performance liquid chromatography of cell wall mycolic acids and genetic sequencing. Antimicrobial susceptibility was also determined. The findings confirmed recent data concerning human isolates of this new mycobacterium and identified a new 16S rDNA sequevar for this species.
