No lesions were reported by endoluminal colonoscopy. Background Infection by Actinomyces is a slow progression chronic bacterial disease caused by Gram-positive, anaerobic, non-spore-forming germs typically colonising the mouth, colon and vagina.

Diagnostic imaging, total abdominal ultrasound and CT suggested a colonic neoplasia located in the right flank.

Rev Chil Obstet Ginecol ; Clin Infect Dis ; Am J Roentgenol ; Report of a case. During recent years, we have witnessed actinomicoais technological advances in electronic publication. The accessibility and wide diffusion of on-line publication will provide the opportunity for actinpmicosis scientific colleagues, not only in Latin America, but throughout the world, to share the knowledge and skills of our Mexican surgical community, as well as to provide authors from other countries with a forum for participating in our Journal, in order that we may gain knowledge of surgical specialties throughout the world.


Eur J Cardiothorac Surg ; 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, abcominal in the course of an exploratory laparotomy.

The clinical presentation mimics tuberculosis or neoplastic processes. Vaginal cultures, with endometrial aspiration and peritoneal culture also come back negative, finding only slow and scarce growth of Peptostreptococcus species in peritoneal fluid sensitive to penicillin and amoxicillin.

The proper treatment is penicillin, with surgical drainage of abscesses in the event of therapeutic failure. 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.

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

Background Abdominal wall actinomycosis is a rare disease associated with the use of intrauterine device and as a complication of abdominal surgery.

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.


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

Laboratory results upon admission to the emergency department proved severe anaemia haemoglobin 8.

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. The Mexican Academy of Surgery is pleased to offer this on-line publication without fees or subscription.

There are multiple cases in medical literature of pelvic actinomycosis mimicking malignant neoplasms, 3,4 leading to an entirely different management of the disease. Actinomicosis de pared abdominal. The postoperative stage evolves torpidly, with fever spikes and actinomiosis symptoms, which lead to antibiotic intravenous treatment with amoxicillin—clavulanic acid, which lowered the hyperthermia.
