Abstract

We report a case of nocardiosis in an immunocompetent patient who presented with pain and multiple swellings in the face. Nocardia asteroides was isolated from the parotid and submandibular salivary glands. The patient was successfully treated by surgical drainage and oral administration of trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case from India on N. asteroides affecting the salivary gland.
