We report the first Cuban case of mycobacteriosis caused by Mycobacterium malmoense in an HIV infected patient who developed submandibular ulcerative adenopathies. Culture of clinical samples yielded a non-pigmented, slowly growing mycobacteria strain that was classified in the Runyon Group I. The identification was complemented by biochemical tests and analysis of mycolic acid fractions
