In this sense, the oral flora determines the potential of oxygen reduction that would favor the growth of this actinomiicosis bacterium 1247.

Comments The referred clinical case exemplifies the involvement of the medial-anterior cervical region by Actinomyces with late diagnosis following abscess drainage and collection of biopsy specimen. It is more common in male patients, for a ratio of 3: Rev Ch Infectologia ; 5: Predisposing factors for cervicofacial actinomycosis include poor oral hygiene, break in normal mucosal barriers, and anaerobic medium 3. Existen tres formas principales de actinomicosis: Next, patient was indicated treatment with cephalexin and symptomatic medication.

Regional adenopathy, pediatra turn, is not common 7. InBellinger identified the Actinomyces as a specific parasitic disease after finding mycelia in purulent specimen taken from the mandible of cattle. Resulting severe involvement of the cranium and spinal column can develop to meningitis and death.

In this article we present the case of a 63 year-old man with no comorbidity, with pulmonary actinomycosis involving the chest acttinomicosis mimicking a neoplastic process, basing the diagnosis on histopathologic findings.

Patient sought medical assistance and was indicated to take symptomatic medication.

Discussion Actomycosis was first described in the 19th century as a disease found in bovine animals. J Emerg Med ; Pleural effusion as the major manifestation of actinomycosis. Se dio de pdiatria con amoxicilina hasta completar tres meses. Antibiotic treatment of cervicofacial actinomicosis for patients allergic to penicillin: The microorganism is classified as an intermediary between fungus and bacterium 12478.


The disease affects the cervicofacial area starting at the buccal mucous membrane or pharyngeal membrane. The bacterium is a colonizer of the oral cavity that rarely causes infection, which indicates avtinomicosis low potential of virulence or invasion. Click here to print this page.

Actinomycosis is an infrequent infection caused by bacteria from Actinomyces genus that manifests as a chronic, suppurative and progressive disease. Following the use of antibiotic therapy, especially with penicillin, this entity has become even more rare and less pediarria since it is sensitive to various antimicrobials 4.

These bacteria can be divided into six subgroups: Patient was indicated to the department of Pediatric Infectious Diseases and submitted to treatment specific for actinomycosis with administration of crystalline penicillin for 14 days. Inthe microbiologist Hartz, in using the material collected by Bellinger, confirmed the finding of radial microorganisms, which he named Actinomyces bovis Akino for radial discharge of sulfur granules and Mycos for mycelia.

An Med Rio Gde S. Invasion of the orbit and ear, including the middle ear, have been described as extremely rare 5. South Med J ; Porto Alegre ; We carried out a review of the actinomicozis on cervicofacial actinomycosis of the last few years. The disease disseminates to contiguous areas with subsequent involvement of structures in contact. Patient also remained afebrile during the actinomicpsis and was discharged from the hospital and indicated long-term antibiotic therapy.

Subsequently, the moderate edema reappeared in the medial cervical region and was associated with intense local pain, moderate hyperemia, various daily episodes of fever that were not measured, and mild dysphasia.


Clin Infect Dis ; Consequently, treatment requires high-dose, long-term antibiotic therapy 4it depends on individual clinical and radiological improvement of patients, and it should be administered intravenously for 3 to 6 weeks and orally, after hospital discharge, for 6 to 12 months 347.

J Laryngol Otol ; Case report and review of the literature”. 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, Other additional methods are tomography of the head for assessment of bone involvement and of development of the pathology; gallium scintigraphy for delimitation of the natural inflammatory process also a good method for easy and effective follow-up procedures ; ultrasonography for differential diagnosis of natural inflammation and the disease process; and sialography for assessment of salivary gland involvement 4.

Pulmonary actinomycosis with thoracic soft tissue mass: The etiologic agent of Actinomyces is a member of the Actinomycetaceae family, which are colonizers of the oral cavity and of the mucous membrane of other orifices 7.

Subsequently, we observed remission of the node. Principles and Practice of Infectious Diseases 7th ed. We also carried out a review of the literature from the past few years Lilacs and Medline.

Actinomycosis is a granulomatous, chronic, and infectious disease with characteristics of suppuration and that is produced by gram-positive bacilli of the Actinomyces strain. Steward MG, Sulik M. Rev Chilena Infectol ; 29 4: Introduction Actinomycosis is a granulomatous, chronic, and infectious disease with characteristics of suppuration and that is produced by gram-positive bacilli pediaria the Actinomyces strain.
