Case Study
Actinomiches is a patogen for pelvis while it is a member of normal oropharingeal flora. Pelvic actinomycosis is a very rare form of actinomycosis with only 3% of all actinomycosis cases. Actinomycosis becomes a solid mass which is stuck to surrounding organs with perioverian chronic granulomatous reaction, and it is commonly confused with malignancy. In present study, we reported a case with pelvic actinomycosis that was operated for differential diagnosis of a mass lesion in over and diagnosed by post-operative histological examiantion.

    Background: Pelvic actinomycosis is uncommon and often presents as a complication of an intrauterine device (IUD). A diagnosis of actinomycosis can be made from the finding of sulfur granules within inflammatory exudate on histologic examination after surgery. However, it may be possible to...

    Ovarian fibrothecoma is a relatively new term that is used to describe an ovarian sex cord stromal tumour that has mixed features of both fibroma and thecoma. The prevalence of ovarian fibrothecoma tumours is very rare and is reported to be about 1.2% of all ovarian tumours. We report a case of...

    Intrauterine devices are a very effective form of contraception used worldwide for more than 2 centuries. One of the serious, but rare, complications of intrauterine contraception is perforation through the uterine wall into the pelvic or abdominal cavity. In this report we describe, persistent...

    Pseudoactinomycotic radiate granules (PAMRAGs) are rarely detected lesions in ovary. Endometrium is the usual site and a detailed search of literature yielded only two cases in the ovary. PAMRAGs must be differentiated from actinomycotic granules which are also strongly associated with the use...
