Abstract Share this page

Abstract Abdominal actinomycosis is a disorder which often complicates a chronic perforation of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, such as at the appendix (Wyngaarden and Smith, 1988). Delayed diagnosis characterizes abdominal actinomycosis. Multiple abscesses and draining sinuses are frequently present. Treatment has consisted of long-term oral antibiotic therapy coupled with surgery, including incision and drainage of abscesses with removal of persistent sinuses (Berardi, 1979). We present a patient with abdominal actinomycosis complicating a chronically ruptured appendix who was managed by percutaneous catheter drainage and antibiotic therapy.
