Cerebral spinal fluid from a patient affected by a brain abscess caused by Nocardia abscessus gave a positive result for (1-3)-β-d-glucan (BG) assay, in absence of any fungal infection. This study aimed to assess whether Nocardia spp. show cross-reactivity with BG assay. All Nocardia spp. analyzed provided positive reactions.

Abstract

Cerebral spinal fluid from a patient affected by a brain abscess caused by Nocardia abscessus gave a positive result for (1-3)-β-d-glucan (BG) assay, in absence of any fungal infection.
