PURPOSE: Nocardiosis is a rare bacterial infection of either the lungs (pulmonary) or entire body (systemic) caused by aerobic actinomycetes in Nocardia, a Gram-positive bacteria, that usually affects immunocompromised patients. The most common pulmonary radiological abnormalities are cavity, nodus, mass, or alveolar infiltrate. Most of the lesions of the lung are unilateral.
