Abstract

Disseminated nocardiosis has never been described before in a patient with Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia. We report an unusual case of disseminated nocardiosis in a patient with Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia who presented with pulmonary non-caseating granulomas. The patient was successfully treated with trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX) for 1 year.
