BLANCO CACERES, Boris A.; MONTANO-RUEDA, Karla N.  y  BLANCO CACERES, A. Mélany. Oropharynx Actinomycosis, a Cervicofacial Presentation. Rev Cient Cienc Méd [online]. 2010, vol.13, n.1, pp. 38-40. ISSN 2220-2234.

Actinomycosis is a disease caused by Actinomyces Israelii and Proprinibacterium, most often affects adult men and may take several forms: cervicofacial, thoracic, abdominal and pelvic. Cervicofacial involvement may appear as a mild tumor, like an abscess or a mass, but is not always easily diagnosed, and in fact, is often mistaken for malignancy or granulomatous disease.The diagnosis was obtained through microbiological and histological findings. A male patient, aged 67, had constant pain in the oropharynx for some months, which prevented him from eating. On examination: coated tongue, small, yellow lingual secretion granules, indurated lesion oropharyngeal and numerous disseminated lesions, of 3 mm in diameter on the skin of the hands, abdomen and lower limbs; with the correct diagnosis we can start appropriate treatment.
