Actinomycosis is a chronic granulomatosis infection caused by a Gram positive anaerobic bacteria, Actinomyces. Abdominal localizations are rare and simulated a malignant process. The difficulties of diagnosis are usually leading to surgical resection. We report a colonic actinomycosis case of a 62-year-old woman with a abdominal tumor and diagnosed after surgical resection.
