Abstract

Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) disseminated infection is an opportunistic infection that occurs almost exclusively in immunocompromised individuals. We report an interesting case of multidrug-resistant polyclonal disseminated MAC infection in a patient with AIDS. During combination anti-MAC therapy, cultures became negative but he developed sensorineural hearing loss as a result of azithromycin ototoxicity
