Resumen

ANTELIZ GARCIA, Eliana T et al. Cervicofacial actinomycosis as differential diagnosis of cavum carcinoma: case report. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2017, vol.115, n.3, pp.e166-e169. ISSN 0325-0075.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5546/aap.2017.e166.

Paediatric actinomycosis is an infrequent infectious disease caused by Actinomyces spp. Cervicofacial infections are usually related to disruption in oral mucosal membranes. We discuss the case of a 15-year-old girl who refers an 8-month history of odynophagia and changes in her tone of voice after getting a tongue piercing. She received multiple antibiotic treatments with slight improvement. Nasopharyngeal carcinoma was diagnosed by endoscopic biopsy. The patient was referred to our Hospital for treatment but, when the biopsy was analyzed again, oncological pathology was excluded and oropharyngeal actinomycosis was diagnosed. She received a total of 6 months of antibiotic treatment with favorable evolution.

Palabras clave : Cervicofacial actinomycosis; Actinomyces; Children.
