Abstract

Nontuberculous mycobacteria are rare causes of cardiac implantable electronic device (CIED)-related infections and may lead to device-related endocarditis, so preventing them is key. We present a case of CIED-related pocket infection due to Mycobacterium fortuitum which highlights the challenges in management of such infections.
