Abstract

Nocardiosis is a life-threatening infection that affects the lungs, skin, and central nervous system, particularly in immune-compromised patients. We report a case of disseminated nocardiosis with pneumonia, brain abscesses, meningitis, and thyroiditis, for an individual with recent steroid therapy. Recovery was uneventful with a 4-month course of sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim.
