M. avium is a bacterium that infects people with compromised immunity or a lung disease such as cystic fibrosis. Common symptoms include fatigue, cough, shortness of breath, and hemoptysis, which may persist or worsen. Because symptoms are common, it may take a longer time to diagnose. In addition to lung disease, it can cause infections that spread throughout the body and can even cause swollen lymph nodes. For diagnosis, changes in the lungs are detected through chest X-rays and CT and the diseases is confirmed by culturing patient's sputum.
