Included in the original report of pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (1) were two instances in which there was associated nocardiosis. Since that time three additional reports of this association have been recorded (2-4).
Recently a patient with pulmonary alveolar proteinosis and cerebral nocardiosis was recognized at this center. A search of the pathology files was rewarded by the finding of another instance in which pulmonary alveolar proteinosis was associated with nocardiosis. The purpose of this paper is to describe these two cases and to discuss the possible pathogenetic relationship of pulmonary alveolar proteinosis and nocardiosis.
