The clinical presentation mimics tuberculosis or neoplastic processes.

[Actinomicosis abdominal].

First the possibility of a new intervention for the resection aactinomicosis the abdominal tumour and potential hysterectomy with double adnexectomy was considered, this idea was discarded when full remission of the lesions was proved in imaging tests.

Traditionally, pelvic actinomycosis was considered as secondary to an intra-abdominal infection, such as appendicitis.

The specimen was sent for histopathological study, concluding the diagnosis of inflammatory pseudotumor secondary to abdominal actinomycosis. Primary actinomycosis of the anterior abdominal wall: Varios autores recomiendan administrar penicilina G intravenosa por un mes y luego reemplazarla por penicilina oral por 6 a 12 meses o por amoxicilina 1,4,16, SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.


Pelvic and abdominal wall actinomycosis associated to the use of IUD may simulate a neoplastic disease, and it is therefore frequently treated surgically.

Background Infection by Actinomyces is a slow progression chronic bacterial disease caused by Gram-positive, anaerobic, non-spore-forming germs typically colonising actonomicosis mouth, colon and vagina. Female pelvic actinomycosis and intrauterine contraceptive devices. Antibiotic therapy is the first treatment choice and makes a more invasive surgical management unnecessary.

Abdominal actynomycosis simulating malignant tumor of the colon. After 6 days of admission, a computerised axial tomography is performed, reporting extensive density areas, irregular soft parts obliterating fat planes of the pelvic region, including hypodense areas suggesting fluid collection in the left periuterine and periadnexal regions, with involved uterus and adnexal regions; said involvement has multifocal contact with the rectosigmoideal region, with slight associated wall thickening; several areas of loops contiguous to pelvic involvement, with potential secondary involvement, with no significant retrograde distension suggesting obstructive repercussion.

Report of a case. On the belief that it is a peritoneal carcinomatosis of unknown abdominnal origin, and the great difficulties involved in ressecting the tumour, which infiltrates the entire abdominal wall, it is decided to end the intervention with no hysterectomy or adnexectomy, and gather multiple biopsies.

Actinomicosks should be considered in patients with pelvic mass or abdominal actniomicosis mass that mimics a malignancy. Radiology,pp. With the suspected diagnosis based on the computed axial tomography of extensive involvement in the pelvic region of an inflammatory-infectious nature, with probable gynaecological dependence, it is decided to perform an exploratory laparotomy. The patient is discharged from the hospital 1 month after the intervention and continues with controls, with complete disappearance of the radiological lesions 2 months after the intervention.
