Dissemination of the pulmonary nocardiosis most commonly occurs to the sites like brain, kidney, chest wall, and skin. Dissemination to the skin and the subcutaneous may occur but rarely been observed in clinical settings. Here, we present an unusual case of disseminated cutaneous nocardiosis from pulmonary nocardiosis in a patient of nephritic syndrome who was on steroids and immunosuppressants. This case highlights the importance of considering nocardiosis in differential diagnosis in case of immunocompromised patients presenting with pulmonary complaints and cutaneous lesions.
