Cure of brain abscess caused by Nocardia asteroides resistant to multiple antibiotics



Cure of brain abscess caused by Nocardia asteroides resistant to multiple antibiotics



Southern Medical Journal 81(3): 412-413



A case is reported in a 29-yr-old man with pulmonary infiltrates due to pulmonary alveolar proteinosis, who had Nocardia asteroides pneumonia and brain abscess. Despite repeated surgical drainage and therapy with sulphonamides, minocycline and cefotaxime the nocardial infections persisted. Based on susceptibility studies and serum concentrations the patient received minocycline (400-600 mg/d), cefotaxime (12-30 g/d) and probenecid for 15 months.
