Mycobacterium marinum (balnei)
In 1954, Linell and Norden first isolated and identified M. marinum as the specific agent for a characteristic disease of the skin that was associated with swimming pools. They established the source of the infection as bacterial colonies in rough cement and described a specific response in animals as well as the histological and immunological results of human infection.229
