Mycobacterium chelonae bacteria, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). These Gram-positive rod-shaped bacteria are usually found in soil and water, but they are also part of the normal flora in the digestive and respiratory tracts of humans and animals. However, sometimes they can cause local opportunistic infections in skin and soft tissues, particularly after surgery or intramuscular injections. They may also cause wide-spread infection in those with weakened immune systems. Treatment is with antibiotics.
