A 40-year-old renal transplant recipient developed cutaneous nocardiosis while on immunosuppressive medications. Response to sulfisoxazole was good, but three months later, systemic nocardiosis, including unilateral chorioretinal abscesses, appeared. The patient died despite intensive antibiotic therapy. Postmortem examination of the involved eye demonstrated proliferation of the Nocardia along Bruch's membrane with chorioretinal abscess formation.
