Surgical site infection due to Mycobacterium mageritense is reported in an 85-year-old Japanese woman. In this patient, a mesh patch was inserted to close a ventral hernia and surgical site infection occurred 7 days postoperatively. The isolate was confirmed to be Mycobacterium mageritense by analysis of the 16S rRNA and rpoB genes. The infection was successfully treated with negative pressure wound therapy and long-term antibiotics without removal of the mesh patch.
