Abstract

Based on stained smears of material obtained from the canaliculus, three cases of canaliculitis were presumed to be caused by Actinomyces. Cultures of these cases showed Fusobacterium to be the probable infectious agent producing the disease.

Actinomycosis is a rare, chronic, and slowly progressive granulomatous disease caused by filamentous Gram positive anaerobic bacteria from the Actinomycetaceae family (genus Actinomyces). The disease is characterised by the formation of painful abscesses in the mouth, lungs,breast or gastrointestinal tract. Discover the latest research on actinomycosis here.
