Abstract
Actinomycosis is a rare disease in human and has variable clinical features, which make the diagnosis difficult. Actinomycosis may be confused with malignancy and other inflammatory diseases because of its infiltrative nature and its tendency to invade normal anatomic barriers. We have experienced a case of abdominal actinomycosis combined with ovarian mucinous cystadenocarcinoma and report this case with brief review of literatures.
Key Words: Actinomycosis, Ovarian carcinoma
