dc.description.abstractPelvic actinomycosis in women most commonly occurs during ascending infections, usually associated with intrauterine devices (IUDs). However, secondary hepatic actinomycosis is very rare. A 47-year-old woman using IUDs for 18 years was referred under the impression of ovarian cancer. Further investigation revealed a hepatic tumor diagnosed as an inflammatory pseudotumor by fine needle aspiration biopsy, and a pelvic mass diagnosed as pelvic actinomycosis by sulfur granules in bilateral adnexa gained by an explorative laparotomy. Long-term therapy with high-dose intravenous penicillin and oral amoxicillin resulted in clinical and radiological improvement. The management of pelvic actinomycosis is based on a medical approach, although it sometimes requires surgical intervention. However, the necessity for surgical treatment is controversial in cases of secondary hepatic actinomycosis.en
