Pulmonary actinomycosis

Pulmonary actinomycosis is a chronic suppurative granulomatous disease caused by anaerobic Israeli actinomycetes infecting the lungs. The lesion is characterized by multiple abscesses and sinus formation, and the secretion contains sulfur yellow particles and pus, which is easy to form fibrosis. The lesions of neck, face, chest and abdomen account for about 1 / 3. The lung is infected with actinomycetes, which is called pulmonary actinomycosis. This bacterium is a common bacterium in the oral cavity, dental caries and tonsil recess of normal people. Most of them are due to poor oral hygiene and inhalation of secretions containing actinomycete particles. It can also come from hematogenous dissemination or direct spread of abdominal lesions.
