A Novel Mutation in Chronic Granulomatous Disease: Treating the Family, Not Just the Patient.

Front Pediatr 2019 28;7:107. Epub 2019 Mar 28.

Division of Pediatric Allergy and Immunology, Department of Pediatrics, Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, PA, United States.

Chronic Granulomatous Disease (CGD) is caused by genetic defects in the phagocyte NADPH oxidase leading to potentially severe infections with catalase positive micro-organisms. With the innate immune system being affected this disease usually presents before the age of 5 years with infections involving the skin, lung, liver or lymphnodes. Infections with specific catalase positive organisms, especially and prompt a workup for CGD in affected patients. Read More

Department of Infectious Disease and Clinical Microbiology, Ankara Numune Training and Research Hospital, Ankara, Turkey.

Disseminated Nocardia infections occur particularly in immunosuppressed hosts and are most often due to Nocardia farcinica, Nocardia nova, and Nocardia cyriacigeorgica. Here, we report an unusual case of disseminated N. farcinica infection presenting as a paravertebral abscess in a patient with systemic lupus erythematosus. Read More

Department of Respiratory Medicine, The Third Affiliated Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University, Wenzhou, Zhejiang, China.

Nocardia species usually cause opportunistic infections, and the frequency of these infections is increasing owing to the growing population of immunocompromised hosts. However, Nocardia may sometimes causes an infectious disease in immunocompetent hosts. Herein, we report two cases of pulmonary nocardiasis in immunocompetent individuals, whose chest computed tomography (CT) findings mimicked bronchiectasis. Read More

Nocardia infections in solid organ transplantation: Guidelines from the Infectious Diseases Community of Practice of the American Society of Transplantation.

Clin Transplant 2019 Feb 28:e13509. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Medicine, Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine, Maywood, Illinois.

These updated guidelines from the Infectious Diseases Community of Practice of the American Society of Transplantation review the diagnosis, prevention, and management of Nocardia infections after solid organ transplantation (SOT). Nocardia infections have increased in the last two decades, likely due to improved detection and identification methods and an expanding immunocompromised population. The risk of developing nocardiosis after transplantation varies with the type of organ transplanted and the immunosuppression regimen used. Read More

Comparative Study of Immune Reaction Against Bacterial Infection From Transcriptome Analysis.

Front Immunol 2019 5;10:153. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

Department of Veterinary Medicine, College of Veterinary Medicine, National Pingtung University of Science and Technology, Pingtung, Taiwan.

Transcriptome analysis is a powerful tool that enables a deep understanding of complicated physiological pathways, including immune responses. RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq)-based transcriptome analysis and various bioinformatics tools have also been used to study non-model animals, including aquaculture species for which reference genomes are not available. Rapid developments in these techniques have not only accelerated investigations into the process of pathogenic infection and defense strategies in fish, but also used to identify immunity-related genes in fish.

SA Pathology, Department of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, Adelaide, SA, Australia.

Mass spectrometry plays a significant role in the routine identification of micro-organisms and provides the ability to incorporate newly found pathogens into the database in a cost-effective fashion. This work aims to highlight the role of mass spectrometry through improved identification of Nocardia species in a diagnostic clinical microbiology laboratory. Prior to this study we constructed a custom in-house matrix-assisted laser desorption ionisation-time of flight (MALDI-TOF) library for Nocardia isolates consisting of isolates identified to the species level.

An unusual case of Nocardia cyriacigeorgica presenting with spinal abscesses in a renal transplant recipient and a review of the literature.

Transpl Infect Dis 2019 Feb 27;21(1):e13025. Epub 2018 Nov 27.

Institute of Human Virology and Division of Infectious Diseases, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland.

Nocardia species represent a well-recognized yet uncommon cause of opportunistic infections in humans. It most frequently presents as a pulmonary infection with or without central nervous system involvement. It is a very rare cause of spinal abscesses, with only 26 cases reported in the literature.

Antimicrobial susceptibility and clinical characteristics of Nocardia isolates from a tertiary care centre diagnostic laboratory in Pakistan.

J Glob Antimicrob Resist 2018 Dec 6;15:219-221. Epub 2018 Jul 6.

Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi, Pakistan.

Objectives: Nocardiosis is an opportunistic infection that can present as cutaneous, pulmonary and/or disseminated disease depending on the host immunity. Treatment choices include trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (co-trimoxazole; SXT) and imipenem along with some other antibiotics. The Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) recommends the broth microdilution (BMD) method to determine antimicrobial susceptibility, however there is a lack of susceptibility data using this method in Pakistan.

Lymphocutaneous nocardiosis in a kidney transplant patient successfully treated with tigecycline.

Saudi J Kidney Dis Transpl 2018 Sep-Oct;29(5):1207-1210

5th Department of Medicine, Division of Infectious Diseases, Evangelismos Hospital, Athens, Greece.

Cutaneous nocardiosis is an infrequent infection which has been increasingly reported in immunocompromised patients. Although trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole is considered to be the agent of choice for treatment of nocardiosis, newer antimicrobials such as tigecycline have been proven to be effective in vitro, as well. We report the first case of primary cutaneous nocardiosis in a renal transplant recipient having corresponded well to treatment with tigecycline. Read More

Two cases of primary cutaneous nocardiosis caused by intralesional injection.

Dermatol Ther 2019 01 19;32(1):e12775. Epub 2018 Nov 19.

Department of Dermatology and Laboratory Medicine, Gachon University Gil Medical Center, Incheon, South Korea.

Nocardiosis is a rare localized or systemic suppurative disease caused by the actinomycete Nocardia species. The respiratory tract is the most common site of infection, but primary cutaneous nocardiosis can also be induced by direct inoculation. Nocardiosis is usually reported in immunocompromised patients, such as those with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, autoimmune diseases, cancer, or in those who have had organ transplantation or corticosteroid administration.

Primary cutaneous nocardiosis: a diagnosis of consideration in a renal transplant recipient.

BMC Clin Pathol 2018 1;18. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

3Department of Nephrology and Renal Transplantation Medicine, Grande International Hospital, Kathmandu, Nepal.

Background: The cutaneous nocardiosis remains a diagnostic challenge: similar clinical presentations as of cutaneous diseases with different etiology-and the inherent difficulty in cultivating the pathogen.

Case Presentation: Herein, we describe a case of primary cutaneous nocardiosis in a renal transplant recipient; treated with anti-tubercular drugs due to misdiagnosis of cutaneous tuberculosis. On clinical examinations, a few red erythematous papules with erosions and crusting seen, over prior surgery scar of renal transplant. Read More
