Organisms of the Mycobacterium fortuitum complex are an uncommon but important cause of periprosthetic infection following augmentation mammoplasty or other breast surgery. This etiological agent must be considered in the particular case of periprosthetic infection, because special handling of the fluid is crucial to enhance recovery of the organism. We describe the computed tomography (CT) and mammographic findings in such an abscess with respect to the clinical context and subsequent management. To our knowledge, CT findings associated with any periprosthetic breast infection have not been described.
