Nocardia could be transmitted to lungs through dust particles then transmitted to other organs via vascular system. We describe a 11-year old boy presenting with headache and vomiting. CT studies revealed hemorrhage in his right hemisphere as well as cerebral edema. He was hospitalized with primary diagnosis of hydrocephaly and pseudotumor cerebri. Further studies showed nocardia astroides in acid fast and blood agar culture.
