About this work


Mycobacterium genavense infection (mycobacteriosis) This is a medium power view of a bone marrow trephine biopsy from a patient with AIDS and mycobacteriosis due to Mycobacterium genavense. This organism produces identical histopathology to M. avium and shows the same clinical behaviour. H&E stain. Overall the cellularity is normal. There is a granuloma (arrowed) in the lower part of the image. See images W0047322 and W0047323 for other views of this biopsy.
