Nocardiosis is a localized or disseminated infection caused by a soil-borne aerobic actinomycete, most commonly introduced through the respiratory tract. The pulmonary event in humans may be self-limited and transient or subclinical, or it may progress to an acute, subacute, or chronic process mimicking tuberculous or mycotic infection or malignancy. Hematogeneous dissemination spreads particularly to the nervous system and skeletal soft-tissue structures. Solitary abscess represents the most common manifestation in the central nervous system, accounting for 1%–2% of all cerebral abscesses. This article presents a case of primary multiple brain abscesses due to Nocardia farcinica in an immune competent patient. Early diagnosis and surgical intervention is significant for the patient.
