Abstract

Primary cutaneous nocardiosis has a diverse variety of clinical presentations; thus, a high degree of clinical suspicion is essential in making the diagnosis and avoiding inappropriate treatment or surgery. We present the case of a patient with mycetoma on the back with contiguous extension to the cervicothoracolumbar musculature and pleura caused by Nocardia brasiliensis acquired by sleeping on the ground.
