We describe a cluster of 4 bloodstream infections with Mycobacterium neoaurum and 5 additional cases from the literature. Infections occurred mainly in immunocompromised hosts who had central venous catheters. Fever was universal at presentation, but local signs of inflammation were rare. Combination antimicrobial therapy and catheter removal resulted in clinical cure.
