Hospital infection society. International conference. 2. London (GBR), 1990-09-02.
An outbreak of Nocardia asteroides infection affecting seven patients is described.
Over a 5-week period, five patients with liver disease admitted to a ward developed clinical and laboratory evidence of nocardiosis, and two further cases were diagnosed 3 and 5 months later.
Three out of the five patients who received specific antimicrobial therapy responded to treatment; in three patients nocardia infection was considered to have contributed to death.
