Hi, folks. My friend has accepted bone marrow transplantation. She is recovering now, but she has been also diagnosed with nocardiosis now. I wonder if this is common for people with this kind of transplants. I would really appreciate if you could tell me something more. Thanks you for replying to my post.

Hi to you too. Nocardia infection is a chronic bacterial infection. It mostly affects lungs, brain or skin. Since tour friend has a bone marrow transplant, he must have been on immunosuppressant drugs. This had weakened his immune system which is important factor for nocardiosis. There are other types of patients with nocardiosis who have weakened immune system. Your friend should discuss about his treatment of nocardiosis with his doctor. He must do something about it. I hope I’ve helped you a little. Good luck to him!

Hi, there. I agree with the previous post. My mother in law had her kidney transplanted. Later, she got nocardiosis. As far as I understand, this infection is quite rare within people with normal immune system. The ones with weakened immune system are in danger. Immunosuppressant drugs weaken immune system. I hope your friend will feel better. Please, let me know how he is. Bye!
