Figure 1: Acid–fast bacilli testing within cohort. Cystic fibrosis patients were classified into three groups: top; single Mycobacterium abscessus complex specimen, middle; multiple Mycobacterium abscessus complex isolates then spontaneous clearance, and bottom; persistent Mycobacterium abscessus complex isolation. All acid–fast bacilli testing is plotted against time (years) relative to the initial Mycobacterium abscessus complex positive culture (solid red dots). Subsequent Mycobacterium abscessus complex isolates are represented with orange dots and other Mycobacterium isolates with solid blue dots. Open dots represent negative acid–fast bacilli culture. *Patients who underwent treatment
