The incidence of primary cutaneous Mycobacterium intracellulare infection is very low. We report a case of primary cutaneous M. intracellulare infection which presented as painful erythematous swelling of the right upper limb without systemic involvement. A novel technique of vacuum sealing drainage was successfully implemented after antimycobacterial treatment proved ineffective at the end of 3 months. Our technique also revealed some additional practical advantages.
