Positive test and negative test
I’ve recently been diagnosed with MAI by a new doctor. About a year ago I had a positive culture, and immediately went back for a second culture. My second test was negative. So for the past year my doctor has been trying to rule out MAC, saying I has a 50/50 chance since one test was negative. This doctor moved, and I met with a new doctor and he said I definitely have MAC. Has anyone ever heard of a false positive test?
