Abdominal wall actinomycosis is a rare disease associated with the use of intrauterine device and as a complication of abdominal surgery. Pelvic actinomycosis can affect any age group, with no preference for occupation or season and is secondary to perforation or fistulation [ 4 ]. Western Journal of Medicine. Human beings are the only reservoir for Actinomycesthere is no person-to-person transmission, nor animal-to-person transmission of the agent.

The most common aetiological agent is Actinomyces israelii [ 573 ]. It should be emphasised that those cases in which patients were not IUD users were identified more recently. In addition to these medicines, it actinomiclsis been observed that Actinomyces is also sensitive to third-generation cephalosporins, ciprofloxacin, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, and rifampicin [ 4 ].

All patients were IUD users except one case, and the time actinomicowis device use ranged from 22 months to 33 years.


Other possible causes include bacterial vaginosis, which fosters an anaerobic environment and is associated with other microorganisms [ actinomicosi ]; the presence of tumours [ 66 ]; and the use of IUDs [ 3 — 5 ]. First, the signs and symptoms of the patients are considered and can point to a possible abdominal infection, vaginitis, abscess, or possible tumour-forming process.

Pelvcia 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 pelvifa.

During the first reports of this disease, greater numbers of cases were observed in developed countries, but, presently, reports of cases in developing countries and regions such as the Middle East, Southwest Asia, or Latin America are more common.

In the articles analysed, the greatest number of patients diagnosed with actinojicosis actinomycosis on all continents was IUD users, and the periods of use varied widely, from one year to long periods, such as 33 years. Discussion According to the analysis of the articles presented, Europe was the continent on which the greatest number of cases of pelvic actinomycosis was reported, followed by Asia and America.

Isolated ovarian actinomycosis—a diagnosis often underlooked. It is commonly diagnosed through a histological report, obtained after a surgery subsequent to an erroneous initial diagnosis. The diagnosis of pelvic actinomycosis is difficult because it does not produce characteristic disease signs or symptoms.

However, if there is preoperative suspicion of actinomycosis diagnosis, it may be treated satisfactory only with antibiotics. Actinomycete-like organisms in cervicovaginal smears.
