Nocardiosis is an infection caused by Nocardia asteroides bacteria, and these bacteria are commonly found in soil and water. Nocardiosis affects the lungs but it can spread to other areas of the body like kidneys, skin, eyes, bones, and brain. While the symptoms of Nocardiosis will vary depending upon the area of the body that has become infected but some of the common signs of Nocardiosis include fever, fatigue, chest pain, cough and night sweats.
HOW IS NOCARDIOSIS DIAGNOSED?
The health care provider will examine and listen to the lungs using a stethoscope. You may have abnormal lung sounds, called crackles. Tests that may be done include:

• Chest x-ray
• CT scan of the chest
• Pleural fluid culture and stain
• Sputum stain and culture
HOW IS NOCARDIOSIS TREATED?
The infection can be treated successfully with long-term antibiotics.Treatment typically lasts from six months to a year. However, more severe infections may require treatment for a longer period.
