Abstract
Actinomycosis is difficult to diagnose preoperatively because of non-specific clinical feature. We usually have excessively invasive treatment for actinomycosis. So, we must rule out actinomycosis in the case of patients with a complaint of lower abdominal pain with a long time IUD inserted state and laboratory findings suggestive of inflammation. We experienced two cases of pelvic actinomycosis associated with IUD and report these cases with a brief review of literatures.
Key Words: Actinomycosis, Intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD)
