Abstract

In this case report, we present a patient who had an endobronchial lesion that was found to be caused by Rhodococcus equi, earlier known as corynebacterium. Although this organism has been reported to infect immunocompromised patients, including several patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome, it has rarely been reported to present as an endobronchial lesion.
