Abstract

We report a case of pneumonia due to Tsukamurella pulmonis in a 76-year-old immunocompetent woman with chronic pulmonary disease. Microbiological diagnosis was made by bacteriological and molecular means and infection was cured by empirical antibiotic treatment. This work highlights the potential role of Tsukamurella in pathogenesis of pneumonia in immunocompetent patients.
