Pleural involvement in nocardiosis is rare and usually accompanies pulmonary paranchymal involvement. In the case presented here, the patient had been treated with a systemic corticosteroid for a long time for temporal arteritis. He was continuing the treatment when he was referred to our clinic for a diagnosis of the pleural disease. Following a positive pleural culture result for Nocardia, trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole treatment was initiated. Clinical and radiological improvement was observed with treatment. Pleural nocardiosis should be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of cases of pleural effusion with an unknown origin, particularly among immunosuppressed patients.

Keywords: Pleural nocardiosis, pleural effusion, corticosteroid, immunsupression.
