Abstract

Actinomycosis is a chronic suppurative granulomatous infection caused by Actinomyces israelli. Primary cutaneous actinomycosis is rare and the diagnosis requires a high index of clinical suspicion. We report one such case of primary cutaneous actinomycosis on the chest wall of a healthy young woman.
