Nocardiosis is an opportunistic infection, a possible cause of pulmonary & systemic infection in immunocompromised patients. We report on a case of concomitant Nocardiosis & Candidiasis, in recently diagnosed 50 year old woman with auto immune haemolytic anaemia with bilateral extensive pneumonia with septicaemia. The patient was on low dose corticosteroid as a short course therapy which has predisposed for nocardiosis and candidiasis. Patient was treated with Amikacin, Imipenem, Linezolid and Ceftriaxone.
