Response and recommendation
Few data from experimental in vitro and in vivo studies and a limited number of case reports indicate that M. tuberculosis has a slow, albeit signiﬁcant, ability to form bioﬁlm on metal surfaces. The group suggests that management of M. tuberculosis implant-related infections should be treated using the same principles as that of other implant-related infections.
