Actinomycosis is a rare, chronic granulomatous infection, frequently associated with immunocompromised states, but it can also affect healthy people. Here, we report a case of a pulmonary infection by Actinomyces odontolitycus and Veillonella atypica due to a dental caries in an immunocompetent 65-year-old man patient.

Abstract

Actinomycosis is a rare, chronic granulomatous infection, frequently associated with immunocompromised states, but it can also affect healthy people. Here, we report a case of a pulmonary infection by Actinomyces odontolitycus and Veillonella atypica due to a dental caries in an immunocompetent 65-year-old man patient.
