CANDEL, F. J. et al. Bacteremic infection due to Nocardia Otitidiscaviarum: case report and review. An. Med. Interna (Madrid) [online]. 2005, vol.22, n.10, pp.489-492. ISSN 0212-7199.
We present a case of bacteremic pneumonia caused by Nocardia otitidiscaviarum in a corticodependent COPD. Blood and sputum cultures on Mycobacterial media were positives and identification was done using 16S rDNA sequencing. In this article we review the most relevant comunications about Nocardia spp infection and study the strain susceptibility using E-test.
