Nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) infection is of growing concern in cystic fibrosis (CF). UK CF Registry data were analyzed from 2016 to 2018. Prevalence of infection stabilized in the pediatric age-group during this period but remained substantially higher than in 2010. Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection were associated with NTM infection.
