Abstract

INTRODUCTION - The mortality of lung cancer is high, but with early diagnosis the disease can often be cured. The differential diagnosis of pulmonary carcinoma is widely diverse. CASE REPORT - In a 53-year-old male patient, who had been successfully treated for pneumonia complicated with thoracic empyema, both a CT scan and bronchoscopy raised the suspicion of a malignant tumour. Brush cytology was inconclusive; it raised the possibility of malignancy but was not felt diagnostic of a malignant process, whereas biopsy revealed only inflammatory changes. After right lower lobectomy, actinomycosis was diagnosed by histology. This case is used in the paper as an opportunity to discuss the pseudotumorous presentation of thoracic actinomycosis. CONCLUSION - Pulmonary and thoracic actinomycosis is rare, but due to its ability to simulate tumours, it is an important disease to consider in the differential diagnosis of lung cancer.
