We report the case of a 46-year-old male patient with advanced HIV
infection who developed an oral ulcer caused by Mycobacterium kansasii.
It is the first description of an aphthous-like ulcer caused by this
nontuberculous mycobacterium. As the AIDS epidemy is still growing, more
cases might be observed and the current spectrum of differential
diagnosis should be expanded.
