Abstract

Actinomycosis is an invasive, destructive infectious syndrome caused by Gram-positive, branching, filamentous bacteria in the order Actinomycetales. The principal agent of human infections is Actinomyces israelii. The authors report the case of a patient with disseminated actinomycosis with predominant orthopedic, dermatologic, and radiologic features mimicking several other illnesses and compare their findings with published cases in the literature.
