A farmer had chaining lymphocutaneous granuloma on the right hand and arm. Clinically the syndrome seemed typical for sporotrichosis. Bacteriological examination revealed Nocardia brasiliensis as the only etiologic agent. Since 1920, eight similar cases of sporotrichoid nocardiosis have been reported from various parts of the world. To our knowledge, isolation of N brasiliensis has not been reported previously in this geographical area.
