Abstract

Mycobacterium lentiflavum is rarely isolated in respiratory tract samples from cystic fibrosis patients. We herein describe an unusually high prevalence of M. lentiflavum in such patients. M. lentiflavum, isolated from the respiratory tract of cystic fibrosis patients, was identified using both rpoB partial sequencing and detected directly in the sputum by using real-time PCR targeting the smpB gene. M. lentiflavum emerged as the third most prevalent nontuberculous mycobacterial species isolated in cystic fibrosis patients in Marseille, France. Six such patients were all male, and two of them may have fulfilled the American Thoracic Society clinical and microbiological criteria for M. lentiflavum potential lung infection. M. lentiflavum was the third most common mycobacteria isolated in cystic fibrosis patients, particularly in six male patients. M. lentiflavum outbreaks are emerging particularly in cystic fibrosis patients.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 04 December 2015.
All research outputs
#12,107,577
of 15,220,640 outputs
Outputs from BMC Pulmonary Medicine
#878
of 1,259 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#199,045
of 285,964 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Pulmonary Medicine
#97
of 134 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,220,640 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,259 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.8. This one is in the 19th percentile – i.e., 19% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 285,964 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 17th percentile – i.e., 17% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 134 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 16th percentile – i.e., 16% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
