INTRODUCTION: Hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP) related to non-tuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) inhalation (hot tub lung) has been described in various exposures to aerosolized water. We review a case of acute respiratory compromise from such exposure in the setting of coincidental NTM isolation from the patient's spouse who presented with mild clinical illness. Shared water sources were examined by PCR to identify the possible source of infection.
