Parotid Actinomycosis Mimicking Metastatic Lymphadenopathy

Issue: 
Pages: 
349–50

ABSTRACT

We present a patient with actinomycosis of the parotid, as confirmed by histology and discuss the challenges involved when clinical and radiological findings are highly indicative of metastatic malignancy. Early treatment with antibiotics is indicated in fungating or infected masses and exclusion of malignancy by histology is often needed.
