MJA Podcast - Buruli Ulcer, with A/Prof D. O'Brien
Mycobacterium ulcerans causes an infectious disease known internationally as Buruli ulcer, and also as Bairnsdale ulcer or Daintree ulcer in Australia.
Understanding risk factors is key to defining the source and transmission route of Mycobacterium ulcerans, causing severe destructive lesions of skin and soft tissue, resulting in significant morbidity, in attributable mortality and often in long term disability and cosmetic deformity.
