Abstract

We report a case of Rhodococcus equi cavitary pneumonia in a 37-year-old patient with occult HIV infection. Because of his good immune status, the patient was given oral erythromycin and rifampin which rapidly resolved the infection. This modality of treatment may be sufficient in HIV-positive selected patients for the resolution of Rhodococcus equi pneumonia.
