Cutaneous infection with rapidly growing mycobacteria is uncommon and its diagnosis can be missed unless there is strong clinical suspicion coupled with microbiological confirmation. We report a case of localized recurrent soft tissue swelling of the foot by Mycobacterium fortuitum in a healthy adult male. The case is being reported for its uncommon clinical presentation and the associated etiological agent. The patient recovered completely following therapy with amikacin and clarithromycin.
