We report the first case of Mycobacterium iranicumpulmonary disease in an elderly patient with extensive usual interstitial pneumonia and traction bronchiectasis. He was treated with oral doxycycline, ciprofloxacin, and sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim daily for 9 months. This was associated with eradication of the microorganism in the sputum and steady weight gain.
