Abstract We present a remarkable case of primary cutaneous nocardiosis with pulmonary dissemination due to Nocardia takedensis in a 76-year-old man suffering from marginal zone lymphoma and hypogammaglobulinaemia. We also discuss an alternative treatment to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, which could be contraindicated due to haematological and cutaneous toxicities. This case report is of interest due to the emergence of cutaneous nocardiosis in dermatology.
