Till date we have seen a very few literature reporting pulmonary nocardiosis concomitant infection with mycobacterium tuberculosis. We present a 74 year old case in which a patient with long segment myelitis, who was on long term steroids on thorough work up for PUO was found to have mycobacterium tuberculosis co-infected with nocardiosis. Physiological doses of oral steroids recommended for long segment myelitis might be the predisposing factor for opportunistic infection of nocardiosis in patient with MTB.
