Abstract

We describe an unusual case of actinomycosis that appeared as a nasal mass. The diagnosis was established when Actinomyces viscosus was isolated from pus obtained from the right maxillary antrum by intranasal antrostomy. The patient was treated with intravenous crystalline penicillin and made an uneventful recovery within 10 days.
