Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Cervicofacial actinomycosis affects many soft tissue and bony structures in the head and neck, and has both granulomatous and suppurative features. Pathogenesis of actinomycosis is still unclear, but trauma provides a portal of entry for the infection. It usually presents as a diffuse swelling with multiple sinus tracts containing macroscopic colonies of the organism known as "sulphur granules." Cervicofacial actinomycosis in children is rare. This article reports a case of actinomycosis in a 10-year-old-boy overlying the left ramus of the mandible.
