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. 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.

Unusual presentation of cervicothoracic actinomycosis complicated by pericardial effusion: 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 acrinomicosis diagnosis on histopathologic findings.
