Abstract

Cavitary pneumonia caused by Rhodococcus equi may occur in patients with defective cell-mediated immunity. Prolonged CD4 lymphopenia may develop in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia who receive fludarabine. The authors report the first case of a patient with chronic lymphocytic leukemia who developed R equi pneumonia after fludarabine therapy.
