Ovarian actinomycosis developed during the use of a plastic intrauterine contraceptive device.Acta Chir Acad Sci Hung. 1977; 18(2):149-53.AC
The case of a primary ovarian actinomycosis developed during the use of a Szontágh--Szereday type plastic IUD is presented. After a radical operation the patient was discharged in a good condition but 40 days later had to be readmitted because of a pelvic and abdominal wall abscess. After local surgery and massive penicillin treatment she is free of complaints. It is assumed that the IUD had a pathomechanical role.
