Abdominal wall actinomycosis associated with an IUD. A case report.
J Reprod Med. 1985 Feb; 30(2):145-8.JR

Abstract

Abdominal wall actinomycosis without pelvic organ involvement in users of intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUDs) has not been reported on previously. We encountered one such patient, whose uterine cervix was colonized superficially with Actinomyces. We suggest that systemic actinomycosis be included in the differential diagnosis of pain in IUD users when Actinomyces is found on Papanicolaou smears or in endocervical curettings. Such patients should be treated with appropriate antibiotic therapy, especially prior to any surgical intervention.
