N. asteroides are a species of gram-positive, aerobic bacteria, pathogenic in humans. Nocardiosis may occur as a pulmonary infection that spreads, resulting in abscesses in the skin, brain, or other areas. May also give rise to tumours that occur most frequently in the lower extremities, esp. Madura food. TEM Magnification x9,700 at 70mm.
