Resumen

VASQUEZ, Juan; GOMEZ, Carlos; CHIQUILLO, Angela  y  PESCADOR, Luz. Disseminated actinomycosis with central nervous system involvement. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2017, vol.34, n.6, pp.598-602. ISSN 0716-1018.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-10182017000600598.

Actinomycosis is very rare, as well as the central nervous system (CNS) condition associated with it, presenting a mortality up to 28%. Its manifestations could be similar to infectious conditions from other etiologies, thus, having a better understanding of the entity increases clinical suspicion and also it can provide a timely treatment. The clinical case of an adult with edema in an upper extremity is presented as a manifestation of thrombophlebitis and an abscessed axillary lesion, in which actinomycetes infection was confirmed. He presented a haematogenous spread with CNS involvement, with fatal ending.

Palabras clave : Actinomycosis; brain abscess; lymphadenopathy.
