Abstract
Pneumonia is one of the most common causes of infection seen worldwide and still remains one of the most common causes of mortality despite significant advancements in medicine. With the increase in immunosuppression and antimicrobial usage, emerging infectious agents have been isolated in patients with pneumonia. The authors present a case in which Nonomuraea solani, Candida glabrata, and Candida dubliniensis were isolated from a bronchoalveolar lavage from an immunosuppressed patient with pneumonia.
