Nocardiosis is an opportunistic infection especially in immunocompromised patients. Lungs are the most common infection sites and therapy poses some difficulties. We describe a case of pulmonary infection with Nocardia asteroides in a non-Hodgkin's lymphoma patient. Although the mortality from pulmonary nocardiosis is high in immunocompromised patients, our patient was successfully treated with trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMZ) and amikacin. Maintenance therapy with TMP/SMZ was continued for 1 year. This case supports the importance of the long-term maintenance treatment after the initial combination therapy.
