Mycetoma Caused by Nocardia pelletieri in the United States

Mycetoma Caused by Nocardia pelletieri in the United States Abstract A case of actinomycotic mycetoma is reported from the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. This is the first reported case of a mycetoma caused by Nocardia pelletieri in the United States. Clinical, laboratory, and radiographic studies established the diagnosis. Gross microscopic features of the lesions and the causative organism are described. The geographic distribution and classification of N pelletieri are discussed. References 1.

Abstract

Abstract A case of actinomycotic mycetoma is reported from the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. This is the first reported case of a mycetoma caused by Nocardia pelletieri in the United States. Clinical, laboratory, and radiographic studies established the diagnosis. Gross microscopic features of the lesions and the causative organism are described. The geographic distribution and classification of N pelletieri are discussed. References 1. Salles, G.: Um caso raro de mycetoma observado na Bahia , Gaz Med Bahia 49:249-263 ( (July) ) 1917. 2.
