Hi, folks. I have heard about the disease called nocardiosis. I would really like to know something more about its frequency due to decreased immunity. I would appreciate if someone could tell me something more about this. Thanks for replying to my post. It will mean a lot to me. Bye!

Hi, there. You are right. Nocardiosis can affect people with normal immunity, but those with weakened immune system are more prone. Nocardia mostly affects lungs, skin and brain. People on steroid therapy are mostly affected. Also those with HIV/AIDS are affected. Other risk groups are people with cancer or those who have organ or bone marrow transplants. I hope I’ve helped a little. If you need more details, consult an expert. Good luck!

Hello. My father in law had nocardiosis. He had his kidney transplant, so he had to take immunosuppressive therapy. He was diagnosed with pulmonary nocardiosis. The most common way of getting it is via inhalation. Inoculation through the wounds on the skin is a less common way of infection. In any case, nocaridosis infection needs a certain range of suppression of one’s immune system. If you need more details, don’t hesitate to ask. I will gladly help. Bye!
