    The Journal of applied bacteriology
  • 1 June 1989
TLDR
It is suggested that rhodococci should be sought in chronic pulmonary infections, particularly in those who are immuno-compromised or debilitated, and their aetiologic role determined.
Presumptive diagnosis of pulmonary nocardiosis: value of sputum microscopy.
TLDR
It is suggested that some of those in theSputum were from nocardias and that their appearance in sputum, as seen from the Gram-stained slide, when combined with clinical symptoms can serve for a presumptive diagnosis of pulmonary nocardiosis pending a more definitive identification by a specialized laboratory.

  • 1 October 1990
TLDR
The study shows the necessity for the early identification of the aetiologic agents and their antibiotic sensitivity patterns so as to reduce the degree of wasteful polypharmacy or the development of high resistance rates in hospitals and their environments.
Aspergillus and Candida Species Isolated from the Sputa of Patients with Bronchopulmonary Disorders in Nigeria
TLDR
Sputum specimens from 100 patients with bronchopulmonary disorders were investigated for micro‐organisms of etiologic significance and it was observed that a large number of these specimens contained species of fungi occasionally associated with bronChopul pulmonary diseases.
Nocardiosis in pulmonary diseases in parts of Nigeria. I. Preliminary observations on five cases.
TLDR
Pulcho-pulmonary diseases including chronic bronchitis, bronchiectasis, lobar pneumonia, bronchopneumonia and pulmonary tuberculosis, were examined macroscopically, microscopically and by cultures to establish the aetiology of the infections.
