Abstract
Actinomyces species are gram-positive, non-acid fast anaerobic bacteria that exhibit branching, filamentous growth. More recently, It reported that female genital actinomycosis has been associated with the use of an intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD). We have experienced a case of pelvic and abdominal wall actinomycosis with mucinous cystadenoma in a 36-years-old woman using IUD and report it with brief review of literature.
Key Words: Pelvic actinomycosis, Abdominal wall actinomycosis, Intrauterine device (IUD)
