dc.description.abstract Mycobacterium ulcerans disease (MUD) is rapidly reemerging in many countries, especially in West African countries. Antecedent trauma has often been related to the lesions that characterize this frequently crippling disease. We report here the first case of MUD that followed a human bite at the site where the lesion later occurred. en_US
