Abstract

Actinomycosis is a chronic, specific inflammation which is characterized by suppuration, abscess formation, tissue fibrosis and granuloma formation. Actinomycosis has three main forms (cervicofacial, which is the most frequent, approximately 60%, pulmonary and abdominal), but other regions of the body can be involved, too (e.g. neck, ovaries, bones), that is why its differential diagnosis becomes more and more relevant. Regarding its treatment, the majority of authors recommends the combination of surgical and antibiotic treatment. The authors of this article present a typical case of cervicofacial actinomycosis, in which the authors used the combination of surgical and antibiotic treatment. As a result of the treatment the healing process was completed successfully and without complications.
