Brain abscesses caused by Nocardia farcinica in a kidney transplanted man
Nocardiosis is primarily an opportunistic infection caused by aerobic Gram-positive bacteria of the genus Nocardia. In this case report we describe a male patient who previously received a kidney transplant and was admitted to hospital with chills, headache and pain in the neck and left eye, tremor and coordination problems. A magnetic resonance scan of the brain showed multiple abscesses, and blood culture was positive for Nocardia farcinica. Nocardiosis of the central nervous system is a rare, but serious differential diagnosis in immunosuppressed patients with signs of high intracranial pressure.
