Nontuberculous mycobacteriosis are chronic granulomatous diseases caused by different types of mycobacteria. Plain chest X-ray and high resolution computed tomography are highly nonspecific but absolutely neccesary in detection and follow-up of patients with pulmonary mycobacterial infection. Treatment of infection caused by Mycobacterium avium complex is often successful. However treatement is successful only in 55% of patients with pulmonary infection caused by Mycobacterium abscessus complex. The results of therapy is dependent on sensitivity to macrolides whitch are cornerstones of medical therapy. In our case serie of four patients with cystic fibrosis show that results of therapy in patients with preexistent lung disease can be very different and is not dependent only on type of mycobaterial infection and sensitivity to antimicrobial treatment. In such cases, therapy of Mycobacterium avium complex infection can last even several years.
