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 infection was successfully treated with negative pressure wound therapy and long-term antibiotics without removal of the mesh patch.
