Özet

Because of the immunosuppressive drugs used after organ transplantation, there is an increased rate of certain infections and malignancies. Nocardia brain abscess is a rare condition, seen most commonly among immunocompromised patients. It may be confused with intracranial tumors and requires long-term combined antibiotic therapy after drainage.
