[Ab] Abstract:Actinomycosis remains characteristically uncommon, but is still an important cause of morbidity. Its clinical presentation is usually indolent and chronic as slow growing masses that can evolve into fistulae, and for that reason are frequently underdiagnosed. Actinomyces spp is often disregarded clinically and is classified as a colonizing microorganism. In this review of literature, we concomitantly present 11 cases of actinomycosis with different localizations, diagnosed at a tertiary hospital between 2009 and 2016. We outline the findings of at least one factor of immunosuppression in > 90% of the reported cases.

[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: Actinomycosis is a rare bacterial infection caused by Actinomyces. The symptom of actinomycosis is nonspecific and radiological images present as a slow-progressive mass lesion similarly to malignancies. Thus, it is difficult to distinguish pulmonary actinomycosis from malignancies. CASE PRESENTATION: A 74-year-old male who had esophageal cancer and a pulmonary mass that was positive for F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography was initially diagnosed with esophageal cancer with a lung metastasis because he was asymptomatic. However, aspiration of pleural effusion revealed that the pulmonary lesion was actinomycosis. CONCLUSION: We present a case of pulmonary actinomycosis mimicking a lung metastasis from esophageal cancer. Diagnosis of asymptomatic pulmonary actinomycosis is difficult, and needle aspiration could be useful for a definitive diagnosis of pulmonary actinomycosis.

[Ab] Abstract:Actinomycosis is very rare, as well as the central nervous system (CNS) condition associated with it, presenting a mortality up to 28%. Its manifestations could be similar to infectious conditions from other etiologies, thus, having a better understanding of the entity increases clinical suspicion and also it can provide a timely treatment. The clinical case of an adult with edema in an upper extremity is presented as a manifestation of thrombophlebitis and an abscessed axillary lesion, in which actinomycetes infection was confirmed. He presented a haematogenous spread with CNS involvement, with fatal ending.

[Ti] Title:Nasal Cavity Actinomycosis Mimicking Rhinolith.

[Cp] Country of publication:United States
[La] Language:eng
[Ab] Abstract:Actinomycosis is a subacute-to-chronic bacterial infection caused by filamentous, gram-positive, non-acid-fast, anaerobic-to-microaerophilic bacteria. It is characterized by continuous spread, suppurative and granulomatous inflammation, and formation of multiple abscesses and sinus tracts that may discharge sulfur granules. Although the most common clinical forms of actinomycosis are cervicofacial, involvement of the nose and paranasal sinuses are extremely rare. Furthermore, nasal cavity actinomycosis mimicking rhinolith has not been reported in the literature previously. This article reports a patient of nasal cavity actinomycosis causing symptoms similar to those of a rhinolith, which was successfully treated by surgical debridement and antibiotic therapy.

[Ab] Abstract:RATIONALE: Osteoma with actinomycosis is a very rare disease in the nasal cavity. PATIENT CONCERNS: We report a case of a 17-year-old female student who presented with nasal obstruction and rhinorrhea for 6 months. DIAGNOSES: The preoperative finding was osteoma covered with yellowish polypoid material. INTERVENTIONS: We performed endoscopic sinus surgery, which included excision of the tumor and medication with oral penicillin for 8 weeks. OUTCOMES: Postoperative recovery was uneventful. There was no evidence of tumor recurrence during the 1-year period after surgery. CONCLUSION: Anaerobic conditions as a result of allergic rhinitis and narrowed nasal cavity because of osteoma can be the cause of formation of actinomycosis. Clinicians should note that osteoma with actinomycosis can be treated with surgical removal of the tumor and short-term antibiotic therapy.

[Ab] Abstract:The paper provides the annotation and data on sequencing the antibiotic resistance genes in Streptomyces fradiae strain ATCC19609, highly sensitive to different antibiotics. Genome analysis revealed four groups of genes that determined the resistome of the tested strain. These included classical antibiotic resistance genes (nine aminoglycoside phosphotransferase genes, two beta-lactamase genes, and the genes of puromycin N-acetyltransferase, phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase, and aminoglycoside acetyltransferase); the genes of ATP-dependent ABC transporters, involved in the efflux of antibiotics from the cell (MacB-2, BcrA, two-subunit MDR1); the genes of positive and negative regulation of transcription (whiB and padR families); and the genes of post-translational modification (serine-threonine protein kinases). A comparative characteristic of aminoglycoside phosphotransferase genes in S. fradiae ATCC19609, S. lividans TK24, and S. albus J1074, the causative agent of actinomycosis, is provided. The possibility of using the S. fradiae strain ATCC19609 as the test system for selection of the macrolide antibiotic oligomycin A derivatives with different levels of activity is demonstrated. Analysis of more than 20 semisynthetic oligomycin A derivatives made it possible to divide them into three groups according to the level of activity: inactive (>1 nmol/disk), 10 substances; with medium activity level (0.05­1 nmol/disk), 12 substances; and more active (0.01­0.05 nmol/disk), 2 substances. Important for the activity of semisynthetic derivatives is the change in the position of the 33rd carbon atom in the oligomycin A molecule.

[Ab] Abstract:Actinomycosis, an infectious bacterial disease caused by Actinomyces species, is very rare and is characterized by contiguous spreading, subacute to chronic granulomatous inflammation and the formation of multiple abscesses and sinus tracts that may discharge sulfur granules. Actinomycosis that presents on the skin without endogenous origin is called primary cutaneous actinomycosis, and the occurrence and treatment of primary cutaneous actinomycosis is rarely reported. This report describes the treatment of primary cervicofacial actinomycosis with a literature review, and emphasizes the importance of surgical option for complete remission of the disease.
