Abstract
This is the first reported case of Nocardia niigatensis infection in an adult kidney transplant recipient. A 57-year-old Asian woman presented with multiple cutaneous abscesses and rapidly growing fungating mass on the left pretibial area for 2 months. She received a cadaveric kidney transplant 4 years previously and was undergoing immunosuppression with prednisolone, cyclosporine and mycophenolate sodium. The microbiological diagnosis was established by isolation of Nocardia from the purulent material expressed from a granule. The strain was identified to the species level by 16S rRNA gene-targeted PCR. The closest match was with N. niigatensis. Antibiotic treatment (trimethotrim-sulfamethoxazole) was continued for 6 months and the skin lesions improved.
