Most cases of actinomycoses are associated with the face and neck (cervicofacial actinomycosis, commonly called lumpy jaw), but abdominal/pelvic and thoracic infections are also relatively common infections may be associated with artificial surfaces.

Actinomycosis can be categorized in three separate ways, when it is a moveable tumour or lump on the jaw area it is referred to as lump jaw, when it spreads into the hard bone of the jaw it is referred to as big jaw and when it affects the tongue it is referred to as wooden tongue.

Although all three have different names and areas of infection, they are all caused by the same buildup of bacteria. Actinomycosis occurs rarely in humans, but rather frequently in cattle as a disease called "lumpy jaw". This name refers to the large abscesses that grow on the head and neck of the infected animal.

It can also affect swine, horses, and dogs, and less often wild animals and sheep. a b Valour F, Sénéchal A, Dupieux C, Karsenty J, Lustig S Specialty: Infectious disease.

Lumpy jaw (actinomycosis) Introduction Actinomycosis is a rare type of bacterial infection caused by a group of bacteria called actinomycetaceae. Most bacterial infections are confined to one part of the body because the bacteria are unable to penetrate the body’s tissue.

However, actinomycosis is unusual in that the infection is able to move slowly but steadily [ ]. Actinomycosis at a Glance; Worldwide distribution, relatively uncommon. Actinomyces are part of normal upper respiratory, intestinal, and genitourinary flora.; Actinomyces israelii is the most common causative agent, usually mixed with Gram-positive cocci and anaerobes.; Classical presentation is a chronic, localized infiltrative process with abscess fistula formation and draining sinuses.

Actinomycosis may present as a chronic indolent process, as an acute rapidly progressive infection, or somewhere between these extremes. However, the most common presentation remains the chronic indolent form. The hallmark of actinomycosis is the spread of.

Actinomycosis Is a chronic contagious disease of cattle, "lumpy jaw," but is sometimes found in man. Is caused by a fungus, probably a streptothrix, the Actinomyces bovis, which is large enough to be seen by the naked eye, appearing as small yellow particles.Actinomycosis is classified by location as cervicofacial (50–60%), abdominal (25%), or pulmonary (15%) lesions.
