Actinomycosis of the colon.Can J Surg. 1977 Mar; 20(2):150-1.CJ
A 44-year-old woman with severe pain in the right upper quadrant, simulating acute cholecystitis, was found to have a large tumour in the transverse colon. Cultures from the mass grew Actinomyces israelii. Actinomycosis may often be missed; involvement of the large bowel is not confined to the appendiceal and cecal areas and may simulate other intra-abdominal conditions.
