Some reports have described high levels of sulfonamide resistance among numerous Nocardia species,. Nowadays, TMP-SMX remains the drugs of choice for nocardiosis treatment and prophylaxis against Nocardia infection in immunocompromised patients,,.
The reported Brazilian cases displayed in Table 3 showed that the majority 55. In Brazil, molecular analysis for identification of Nocardia species was carried out on only a few occasions,,.
In the present study, the identification system based on MLSA methodology was capable of differentiating currently recognized Nocardia species. Data indicated that all Nocardia isolates were identified by phylogenetic analysis based on the concatenated gyrB-16 S-secA 1 hsp 65 gene sequences as recommended by Mc Taggart and co-workers.
MLSA has provided the identification of the following species: N.
Most of the species were related with pulmonary disease, except for N. To our knowledge, this is the first Brazilian report of human isolates of N.
In Brazil. Mc Taggart and colleagues demonstrated that the MLSA scheme revealed two sets of type strains that failed to form distinct clusters. One of these sets was comprised by N.
Reports of infection induced by M. The mechanism of infection with this organism remains unclear.
Some studies have reported the isolation of M.
Freshwater fish might therefore be a reservoir of M. However, in this case, the patient had not recently been exposed to fish products.
In the first report of M. Similar to many other RGM.
Healthcare-associated outbreaks and community-acquired diseases of RGM are usually related to the pollution of water or soil. Stepping on a nail, motor vehicle accidents and compound fractures are typical of the clinical histories seen in patients with RGM infections.
