Madura foot: treatment of Nocardia nova infection with antibiotics alone.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This case report documents the presentation of a 29-year-old woman with a deep Nocardia nova infection of the foot involving the bones. The patient responded well to prolonged antibiotic therapy, with essentially complete resolution of her symptoms. The results suggest that surgical intervention in these unusual cases may be unnecessary and that good clinical results can be obtained pharmacologically.
