ABSTRACT
Nocardiosis is a rare infectious disease due to Nocardia infections. In this report, we present a rare case of cutaneous nocardiosis with involvement of the trachea, anterior mediastinum and sternum. The strain of Nocardia has been isolated from bacterial culture of infected tissue. 16s rRNA sequencing confirmed that it contained the Nocardia genus. The patient was successfully treated with Co-SMZ.

No MeSH data available.

Figure 2: Spiral CT shows the root of the neck to the anterior mediastinum with multiple masses surrounding the trachea and tracheal stenosis at the thoracic inlet section (a). Manubrium of sternum bone destruction and absorption (b).

Mentions: Chest X-ray and abdominal Echo-scan revealed no abnormal findings. Spiral CT showed: the lower segment of the neck, the root of the neck to the anterior mediastinum with multiple masses surrounding the trachea and tracheal stenosis at the thoracic inlet section, manubrium of sternum bone destruction and absorption, neck skin thickening, the root of the neck to the front chest, the subcutaneous fat of the root of the neck to the front chest was fuzzy, pairs of cable under the shadow of the pulmonary fibrosis, and adjacent pleural thickening (fig. 2).
