Good evening, folks. My friend has been diagnosed with nocardiosis. I really don’t know how he got. He is prone to common colds and influenza. I would like to know how this disease is usually manifested. I would really appreciate if you could tell me something more about this. Thanks. Bye!

Hi. Nocardia usually affects people with weaken immune system. This bacterium mostly affects lungs, skin or brain. Pulmonary nocardiosis (lungs) is manifested with night sweats, fever, weight loss, blood cough and chest pain due to breathing. Skin nocardiosis has ulcers or nodules. In this case, infection spreads along the lymph nodes. Cerebral nocardiosis (brain) has headache, fever and loss of certain neurological function. I don’t know which symptom your friend has. I hope this helped you. Bye!

Hi, everyone. There are some other forms of disease. Very rarely, Nocardia can cause ocular disease. It can cause keratitis. In immunocompromised patients you can expect disseminated nocardiosis. It affects both brain and lungs. Cerebral abscesses can appear later. Fever is also present. As you can see, it is not an easy disease. I hope I’ve helped a little. Bye!
