Abstract

Nocardiosis is an infrequent but severe infection that primarily affects the lung and thence is able to produce disseminated disease. Prompt diagnosis of pulmonary and disseminated nocardiosis is of utmost importance in solid-organ transplant recipients to reduce mortality. Knowledge of the different radiological manifestations in the appropriate clinical setting is key to successful management of these patients. The aim of this review is to describe the radiological features of nocardiosis in immunosuppressed patients, particularly in solid-organ transplant recipients.
