A patient with regional mycetoma of the arm is described in this report. The patient is unusual in that the organism isolated was a Nocardia species, but not one of the commonly reported pathogens, such as Nocardia asteroides, Nocardia brasiliensis, Nocardia caviae, or Nocardia madurae.
The lesion developed at the site of a dog bite in a person with relative hypogammaglobulinemia. The methods of diagnosis and treatment are also discussed.
