Pelvic actinomycosis associated with intrauterine devices.
Radiology 1989; 170(2):559-60R

Abstract

The authors describe two women with pelvic pain, long-term use of an intrauterine device, and a pelvic mass due to Actinomyces israelii. The diagnostic imaging findings were nonspecific but included mass effect and mucosal irregularity of the rectosigmoid colon at barium enema examination and complex masses and inflammatory changes at computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. Radiologists should be aware of the imaging findings of this potentially lethal but curable condition.
