Bottom Line: Rarely, it is also seen in immunocompetent individuals.The lungs and brain are commonly involved.Typical, but nonspecific, findings are often seen on imaging and the presence of concomitant lesions in these two systems often suggests this diagnosis.

ABSTRACT
Localized and multisystem nocardiosis is an opportunistic disease that occurs commonly in immunocompromised patients. Rarely, it is also seen in immunocompetent individuals. The lungs and brain are commonly involved. Typical, but nonspecific, findings are often seen on imaging and the presence of concomitant lesions in these two systems often suggests this diagnosis. We report two cases of cerebral and pulmonary involvement by nocardiosis.

No MeSH data available.

Figure 0002: CT scan of the chest shows consolidation and collapse with internal breakdown in the superior segment of the right lower lobe (arrow)

Mentions: CT scan of the thorax [Figure 2] revealed consolidation and collapse with necrosis in the superior segment of the right upper lobe. Small areas of alveolar opacification were seen in both the lungs. A small left pleural effusion and a pericardial effusion were also seen.
