Actinomycosis is a rare infectious bacterial disease caused by Actinomyces species. About 70% of infections are due to either Actinomyces israelii or A. gerencseriae.

Infection can also be caused by other Actinomyces species, as well as Propionibacterium propionicus, which presents similar condition is likely to be polymicrobial aerobic anaerobic lty: Infectious disease.

Pulmonary actinomycosis constitutes 15% of the total burden of disease, although estimates up to 50% have been reported (1, 5). It is now a rare infection, particularly in the developed world.

The presentation of pulmonary actinomycosis has also changed ant it now appears less aggressive in nature compared with the pre-antibiotic era (5, 6).Cited by: 3. Actinomycosis is a subacute-to-chronic bacterial infection caused by filamentous, gram-positive, non–acid-fast, anaerobic-to-microaerophilic bacteria.

It is characterized by contiguous spread, suppurative and granulomatous inflammation, and formation of multiple abscesses and sinus tracts that may discharge sulfur granules.

Actinomycosis can be categorized in three separate ways, when it is a moveable tumour or lump on the jaw area it is referred to as lump jaw, when it spreads into the hard bone of the jaw it is referred to as big jaw and when it affects the tongue it A case of actinomycosis hominis book referred to as wooden tongue.

Although all three have different names and areas of infection, they are all caused by the same buildup. Actinomycosis is a subacute or chronic suppurative bacterial infection caused by filamentous gram positive, anaerobic to microaerophilic non acid fast bacilli primarily of the genus Actinomyces that normally colonize the mouth, colon and vagina.

Primary cutaneous actinomycosis is a rare entity and is generally associated with by: 2. Cervicofacial actinomycosis is the most common location (55%) of the disease. Although the disease in this location represents the commonest manifestation, isolated intra-oral lesions are uncommon.

Here, the following reports a rare case of actinomycosis involving the hard by: 6. Actinomycosis is a chronic localized or hematogenous anaerobic infection caused by Actinomyces israelii and other species of Actinomyces.

Findings are a local abscess with multiple draining sinuses, a tuberculosis-like pneumonitis, and low-grade systemic symptoms. Diagnosis is by the typical appearance plus laboratory identification.

actinomycosis is thought to have declined in recent years, especially in developed countries as a result of better oral hygiene and susceptibility to a broad range of antibiotics.1 A large case series from found that men were three times more likely to be infected than women,5 although pelvic actinomycosis mainly affects women.

Summary of short-term treatment of actinomycosis reported in the literature. Inon the basis of their experience with 46 patients with actinomycosis, Nichols and Herrell [ 8 ] concluded that “a dosage of at leastU of penicillin daily administered intramuscularly or intravenously for a period of 6 weeks appears to achieve the Cited by: Original Article from The New England Journal of Medicine — Two Cases of Actinomycosis Hominis, with Remarks from a Clinical StandpointCited by: 1.

Actinomycosis is a rare infection, especially in the United States. Since the infection spreads so slowly, actinomycosis was first thought to be a fungal infection.

A common predisposing factor is the presence of tissue-migrating foxtail grass (Hordeum spp) particles, and the primary. Actinomycosis is a rare and chronic infection, caused predominantly by the bacterium Actinomyces israelii and to a lesser extent by other Actinomyces species. They exist naturally in the mucous lining of the nose, throat, mouth, digestive tract, and female reproductive tract, and are not normally harmful.

These anaerobic bacteria have the. Since the author has seen 9 cases of human actinomycosis in India. Two of the cases involved the lung, pleura and chest wall; one case the female breast; two cases the right foot; one case the right hand; one case the right cheek and parotid region; one case the left cervical and sub-maxillary glands; and one case the deep muscles of the back.

While it is rare in general, the thoracic form actinomycosis constitutes ∼15% of the total burden of actinomycosis 3,4. Clinical presentation. Most patients may initially experience a non productive cough and low-grade fever, but pulmonary complaints can be minimal.

Spread to the pleura and chest wall may result in chest wall pain. A rare case of actinomycosis of the brain is reported.

The patient recovered after surgical excision of the lesion and a prolonged course of antibiotic therapy. At follow-up examination 25 months. Actinomycosis is an uncommon, chronic granulomatous disease caused by filamentous, gram-positive, anaerobic bacteria.

Actinomyces israelii is the major human pathogen [ 1,2 ]. Actinomycosis has a worldwide distribution, affects mostly middle-aged individuals, and is two to four times more common in men [ ].

The infectious bacterial disease, when it affects humans, can range from sub-acute to chronic. It has different clinical forms, including the one affecting the cervical and facial area, the thoracic and abdominal/5(71).Actinomycosis, chronic bacterial infection of humans and cattle that is caused by anaerobic or microaerophilic (oxygen-requiring) species of the genus disease is characterized by the development of multiple abscesses (painful, hard, pus-filled swellings) and draining sinus tracts (channels that extend from the site of infection to an opening at the skin .
