A case and medical treatment of actinomycosis

AUTHOR(S): Elif Merve Ozcan, Gokhan Gocmen, Sertac Aktop
ABSTRACT:
Actinomycosis is a chronic bacterial infection characterized by “sulfur granules” in the discharge. Actinomyces species are susceptible to many antibiotics in vitro. Actinomycosis infections are uncommon, and the diagnosis is often missed or delayed because of general unfamiliarity with the disease; so it is still poses a great diagnostic challenge, especially in atypical cases, because of its insidious course and non-specific symptoms. A case of cervicofacial actinomycosis which presents as a persistent extraoral lesion is described.
