All initial isolates should be tested against rifampicin. Resistance usually develops during treatment. A resistant isolate could be tested against ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin, clar-ithromycin, ethambutol, streptomycin, and sulfonamide.

Routine antituberculous agents are not tested for rapidly growing mycobacteria. The drugs tested include amikacin, cefoxitin, fluoroquinolones, doxycycline, clar-ithromycin, tobramycin, imipenem, and sulfonamides. Susceptibility tests for other slow-growing NTM may include isoniazid, rifampin, ethambutol, ciprofloxacin, and clarithromycin. Analysis of mutations in the emb B region could predict intrinsic and acquired resistance to ethambutol in case of NTM.
