Ho Ju Yoon, Bum Kim, Sang Hyn Lee, Hyun Ah Jun, Jwa Goo Jung
Abstract
Pelvic actinomycosis is a rare disease, and has variable clinical manifestations and courses, which make it difficult to diagnose the disease initially. We experienced a pelvic actinomycosis in a woman who complained vaginal discharge and lower abdominal pain, and had not been carring a intrauterine contraceptive device. This infection results in tissue destruction, fibrosis, and the formation of draining sinuses. We describe the case with brief review of clinical diagnosis and management.
Key Words: Pelvic actinomycosis, Tissue destruction, Fibrosis
