Abstract

© 2014 ACIN. Published by Elsevier España, S.L.U. All rights reserved.Nocardiosis is a rare opportunistic disease that affects mainly patients with deficient cell-mediated immunity, such as those with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) or transplant recipients. The central nervous system presentation is as cerebral abscesses and less frequently, as primary meningitis. Here, a case of primary nocardia meningitis is described in a patient without a predisposing condition, along with a literature review.
