Actinomicosis abdominal que simula neoplasia tumoral maligna del colon

Actinomycosis should be considered in patients with pelvic mass or abdominal wall mass that mimics a malignancy. The need to complete the antibiotic treatment with the surgical drainage of abscesses is actinoomicosis.

Rev Chil Obstet Ginecol ; There are multiple cases in medical literature of pelvic actinomycosis mimicking malignant neoplasms, 3,4 leading to an entirely different management actinomicosls the disease. Actinomycosis is an infrequent infection caused by bacteria from Actinomyces genus that manifests as a chronic, suppurative and progressive disease. Anterior superior extension of the density areas of soft parts towards the anterior abdominal wall, with light thickening and hyper enhancement in the right anterior rectum muscle, suggesting secondary involvement Fig.


The Actinomyces culture has several limitations: 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. With no other implants abdomina the rest of the peritoneal cavity. First the possibility of a new intervention for the resection of 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.

Pleural effusion as the major manifestation of actinomycosis. The specimen was sent for histopathological study, concluding the diagnosis of inflammatory pseudotumor secondary to abdominal actinomycosis.

Rev Otorrinolaringol Cir Cabeza Cuello ; Am J Roentgenol ; 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 actionmicosis various clinical manifestations. Traditionally, pelvic actinomycosis was considered as secondary to an intra-abdominal infection, such as appendicitis. An ultrasound scan may be useful in the diagnosis when the infection is advanced and with pelvic abscesses, but there are many times when abdominall can simulate neoplastic processes.

We are confident that this evolution in publication will serve the needs of the international community, as well as to provide our Mexican scientists with greater visibility throughout the global community.

The diagnosis of abdominal actinomycosis was suspected by the finding of the microorganism in cervical cytology together with other cultures and Actinomyces negative in pathological studies, confirming the suspicion of a complete cure with empirical treatment with penicillin.
