Abstract

Mesotherapy is sometimes responsible for dermal and subcutaneous infections caused by nontuberculous mycobacteria. Mycobacterium chelonae, M abscessus, and M fortuitum are usually involved. We present two cases of deep skin infections caused by M chelonae following mesotherapy. A review of the literature is included.
