Abstract

A 35 year old male presented with multiple discharging sinuses in the right gluteal region & multiple nodular soft tissue swellings in the right side of face for one year. FNAC from lesions of both sites showed it as a case of actinomycosis. He was successfully treated by antibiotics & local care of the affected area. No surgical intervention was required. Here we like to present our experience of diagnosing & treating this rare disease.
