Answer

Protracted specific antimicrobial therapy is the mainstay of medical care for nocardiosis. Therapy is generally recommended for at least 6 months. [1]

In patients who require immunosuppressive therapy, such therapy can generally be continued while appropriate specific therapy for nocardiosis is administered.
