[Pathogenic role of Actinomyces apart from actinomycosis. Apropos of 2 cases of acute suppurations with Actinomyces odontolyticus].

Abstract

The authors report two cases of acute suppurative lesions due to Actinomyces odontolyticus. They point out the fairly high incidence of this pathogen in such conditions, either isolated or more often as part of a mixed flora. Conversely, Actinomyces odontolyticus is only exceptionally recovered in true actinomycosis.
