Pelvic and abdominal wall actinomycosis associated to the use of IUD may simulate a neoplastic disease, and it is therefore frequently treated surgically. The Mexican Academy of Surgery is pleased to offer this on-line publication without fees or subscription.

Background Infection by Actinomyces is a slow progression chronic bacterial disease caused by Gram-positive, anaerobic, actinmicosis germs typically colonising the mouth, colon and vagina. SNIP measures contextual citation impact by wighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.


She mentioned a history aactinomicosis eight voluntary abortions and being a carrier of a copper intrauterine device IUD for 4 years, withdrawn 2 months previously during a gynaecological examination. Clinical case The patient attended our hospital with a 2-month history of abdominal pain and symptoms that mimic a paraneoplastic syndrome.

Diagnosis is difficult because it is unusual and behaves like a malignant neoplasm. Actinomycosis is a rare and progressive chronic infectious disease.

Actualmente, se presenta de manera menos agresiva comparado con la era pre-antimicrobiana.

Actinomycosis is an infrequent infection caused by bacteria from Actinomyces genus that manifests as a chronic, suppurative and progressive disease. Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social, We present the case of a patient who had an copper intrauterine device IUD for 4 years, with a stone tumour in abdominal wall associated to a set of symptoms which, clinically and radiologically, mimicked a peritoneal carcinomatosis associated to paraneoplastic syndrome, even in the course of an exploratory laparotomy.

It’s more common in men. Actinomyces israelii is the main pathogen isolated, frequently found as usual endogenous flora of the gastrointestinal tract mucosa; however, occasional mucosal disruptions may cause a chronic granulomatous inflammatory condition with various clinical manifestations.

However, if there is preoperative suspicion of actinomycosis diagnosis, it may be treated satisfactory only with antibiotics.
