Pulmonary Actinomycosis
Summary. The case is reported of pulmonary actinomycosis in a middle-aged woman, a smoker, who had clinical and radiological findings of a tumour-like lesion. The diagnosis was made by CTguided fine needle aspiration biopsy, which revealed tissue rich in actinomycetes. Treatment with a course of penicillin was effective, with complete resolution of the pulmonary lesions and with no relapse four years after the completion of treatment. Pneumon 2007; 20(3):249-252.
