Nocardia species are gram-positive, catalase-positive, rod shaped bacteria. Some species may be pathogenic and may cause a wide spectrum of infections including ocular involvement. Ocular involvement is usually rare and cases may be acquired endogenously or exogenously. Most cases are seen in immunocompromised individuals. In the retina, Nocardia infection usually presents as a localized granulomatous-like lesion which is yellowish in color. Overlying hemorrhage and exudative detachment may also be seen.
