[Tubo-ovarian actinomycosis. A report of two cases and literature review].
Tunis Med. 2006 Jun; 84(6):387-90.TM

Abstract

Actinomycosis is an infection due to an anaerobic Gram-positive bacilus bacteria: Actinomyces. Tubo-ovarian locallisation is rare. It more often appears clinically as a pseudo-tumoral and feverish syndrom, evoking wrongly a malignant tumoral pathology, and often leads to a mutilating surgical treatment. Intra-uterine device appears as the principal favorable factor of this pathology. Basing on two cases reported by the authors, and after literature review, physiopathology, clinical and paraclinical expression, and treatment of this affection are discussed. A set up is made.
