Computerised axial tomography upon admission. Case Reports in Medicine. Histological studies of tissues show inflammatory changes of suppurative and granulomatous nature, connective proliferation, and sulphur granules, which have also been identified in infections caused by Nocardia brasiliensis, Actinomadura madurae, and Staphylococcus aureus.

Chile [ 56 ]. Departamento de Medicina Interna CV. Report of three cases. Actinomycosis is an infrequent infection caused by bacteria from Actinomyces genus that manifests as a chronic, suppurative and progressive disease.

Argentina [ 53 ]. ND Incomplete tumourectomy, actinoicosis resection, partial cystectomy, colostomy and bilateral ureterocutaneostomy, and penicillin Significant improvement 1 43Maeda et al. Journal of Clinical Pathology. Currently other authors such as Demirezen et al. Sulphur granules; Actinomyces israelii ; actinomycotic pelvic abscess secondary to IUD involving the bladder, sigmoid colon, left ureter, liver, and superior abdominal wall.

In this article we present the case of a 63 year-old man with no comorbidity, with pulmonary actinomycosis involving the chest wall mimicking a neoplastic process, basing the diagnosis on histopathologic findings. Other common suspects were tubo-ovarian and pelvic abscesses and Crohn’s disease. Laparotomy, resection of the central part of actinkmicosis epiploon and tumour formation, penicillin, and amoxicillin Significant improvement.

Computerised axial tomography upon admission. Pelvic actynomycosis as the result of a long standing use of an intrauterine device. Pleural effusion as the major manifestation of ;elvica.

According to the observed reports, we conclude that lelvica presentation of symptoms in pelvic actinomycosis is observed in an advanced period of the pathology, which does not include attack to the general state of health or fever, which is oriented towards an infectious pathology.

The proper treatment is penicillin, with surgical drainage of abscesses in the event of therapeutic failure.

No epidemiological studies have been conducted to determine prevalence or incidence of such infections.
