Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pulmonary nocardiosis is a rare infection and overwhelmingly limited to immunocompromised individuals. Endobronchial nocardiosis is even more rare. Nocardiosis is rarely seen in immunocompetent hosts mostly as cutaneous infection. Here we report an immunocompetent child with endobronchial nocardiosis presenting as nonresolving pneumonia and lung abscess. To our knowledge, this is the first case reported in the literature of endobronchial nocardiosis in a child. Pediatr Pulmonol. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
