We describe a case of Streptomyces lanatus pneumonia in an immunocompetent 52-year-old woman. Bronchoalveolar lavage culture grew Streptomyces, which was identified by 16S rRNA sequencing. The infection resolved completely after successful treatment with doxycycline for 6 months. We also review the literature on human invasive Streptomyces infections.
