Nocardiosis is a serious disease that affects your lungs. However, in some cases, the entire body could get affected because of bacterium of the genus Nocardia. The symptoms for this disease include swelling in the lungs area because of excessive water retention. Along with this, you can also have cold and cough that don't seem to go away, night sweats and also trouble in breathing.
HOW IS NOCARDIOSIS DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis of Nocardiosis is done to identify the bacteria causing the infection. Biopsy of the affected part is commonly done to test for bacteria.
HOW IS NOCARDIOSIS TREATED?
All cases of nocardiosis are treated with long-term and low-dose antibiotics known as sulfonamides. Treatment typically lasts from six months to a year. However, more severe infections may require treatment for a longer period. In cases where the patient develops an abscess due to this infection, the doctor may recommend surgery to drain it.
DID YOU KNOW?
The outcome is poor when the infection spreads outside the lung, treatment is delayed, or the person has a serious disease that leads to or requires long-term suppression of the immune system.
