ABSTRACT
Actinomycosis is a very rare disease caused usually by one of a group of opportunistic otherwise harmless commensals that may be complicated by one or more of another group of copathogens. Because of its rarity, there is a chance of missing its diagnosis & proper treatment leading to substantial morbidity & mortality. Maltreated patients are at risk of developing life threatening complications. This article is intended to review the present status of aetiology, pathology, clinical features, complications & management of actinomycosis.
