Abstract

Mycobacterium gordonae is an occasional human pathogen associated with cutaneous infections and nodular granulomatous skin lesions. A case of cutaneous nodular infection caused by M. gordonae in a colony of African clawed frogs (Xenopus tropicalis) is described and confirms this organism to be an opportunistic frog pathogen.
