David Epstein, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor of Infectious Diseases, Stanford University School of Medicine

presented by David Epstein, MD

Mycobacterial, including both tuberculosis and non-tuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) infections, are increasingly common and encountered by providers in multiple medical specialties. These infections are associated with significant morbidity and mortality and often require coordinated involvement of many providers. Treatment can be successful, but there are many pitfalls in workup and management. Understanding the epidemiology, presentation, diagnosis and workup, and treatment of patients with mycobacterial infections is critical to avoiding mistakes and ensuring optimal patient outcomes.

Desired Outcomes:

  • Recognize patients presenting with mycobacterial infections
  • Initiate an appropriate diagnostic workup for patients with possible mycobacterial infections
  • Recommend appropriate treatment or refer to providers if necessary
  • Manage complications of mycobacterial infections
