The patient underwent an ileocecetomywith removal of an atonic segment with resolutionof functional gastrointestinal symptoms, but profound nightsweats continued postoperatively. The patient was presumptivelytreated for a mixed mycobacterial infection, blood cultureslater grew Mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis (MAP),and she improved over time. We discuss MAP and its possiblerelationship to Crohn's disease. Copyright The Author 2017.en_US
