LESIONS of actinomycotic infection in cats have been reported to be found in the cervicofacial region, in the thoracic cavity, in subcutaneous tissue and in the nervous system (Edwards 1998). Abdominal actinomycosis, which is common in dogs, appears as diffuse, purulent inflammation without distinct granuloma formation (Jones and others 1997). In contrast, abdominal actinomycosis in cats is rare (Scott and others 1984). To the authors’ knowledge, there have been no reports of the formation of… Expand

Intra-Abdominal Actinomycetoma in a Cat
Abdominal actinomycetoma in the cat may be an under-diagnosed condition due to its close resemblance to neoplastic disease and prognosis is good for localised lesions. Expand
Actinomyces viscosus Isolation from the Skin of a Cat
This report describes a 1 year-old, female, mixed-breed, indoor cat which developed a purulent exudate around the interdigital area for 6 months despite various antibacterial treatments the skin lesions of the cat deteriorated. Expand
Gastric inflammatory pseudotumour secondary to Actinomyces hordeovulneris infection in a cat
It is suggested that gastric bacterial infection should be considered in cases of focal gastric wall thickening associated with chronic vomiting in the cat, which may otherwise closely resemble neoplastic disease. Expand
Intra-abdominal actinomycetoma in a dog caused by Actinomyces hordeovulneris.
A 4-year-old, male French Brittany weighing 18 kg was presented for continuous disorexia associated with a large palpable mass in the cranial abdomen and after a three months antibiotic therapy, nine months follow up showed complete remission. Expand
Skin as a marker of general feline health: Cutaneous manifestations of infectious disease
The purpose of the article is to reinforce knowledge of common and uncommon infectious diseases, help practitioners identify possible infectious dermatoses, create a comprehensive and prioritized differential list, and provide guidance for the diagnosis of these diseases. Expand
Mandibular lymphadenopathy caused by Actinomyces denticolens mimicking strangles in three horses
Horses with actinomycosis may present with similar clinical signs that are indistinguishable from strangles, which is initially marked by fever, followed by nasal discharge, depression and mandibular lymphadenopathy. Expand

Lymph node abscess due to Actinomyces viscosus in a cat.
In a four-year-old male cat, a subcutaneous phyma about 3.5 cm in diameter was surgically removed from the left inframandibular region and found to be the swollen medial retropharyngeal lymph node containing an actinomycotic abscess. Expand
Comparative pathogenicity of Actinomyces naeslundii and Actinomyces israelii.
The finding that A. naeslundii produced lesions in mice similar to those produced by A. israelii suggests that the organism has similar pathogenic potential for man and its isolation from suppurative lesions of man supports this conclusion. Expand
Actinomyces bowdenii sp. nov., isolated from canine and feline clinical specimens.
Based on phylogenetic and phenotypic evidence, it is proposed that the unknown bacterium be classified as Actinomyces bowdenii sp. Expand
Diseases Caused by Bacteria
Disease of the sexual organs is considerably dangerous, because during this process, through adhesion and scarring of the epididymis or Fallopian tubes caused by inflammation, permanent sterility may occur. Expand
