Pyomyositis is an uncommon primary infection of skeletal muscles. Seventy-five percent of cases occur in immunocompromised individuals, the thigh being a common site.Staphylococcus aureus (90%) accounts for the majority of cases. Nocardial pyomyositis is extremely rare but responds well to treatment if initiated early.Skeletal muscles are very resistant to infection; however, our patient could have developed nocardial pyomyositis from transient bacteremia during plasmapheresis as there was no evidence of systemic nocardiosis.
