Read the abstract of the medical case
presenting with a large abscess and bowel stenosis with marked response to
conservative treatment: a case report
Pelvic actinomycosis is a rare
disease that can result in abscess formation, bowel obstruction, and other
serious complications. Moreover, the correct diagnosis can seldom be
established before radical surgery because the disease often mimics pelvic
neoplasms. It has been recently recognized that pelvic actinomycosis is
associated with long-term use of an intrauterine contraceptive device.
We report a woman with a
long-standing intrauterine contraceptive device who visited our hospital
complaining of symptoms mimicking large bowel ileus with a subacute course.
X-ray fluorography and sigmoidoscopy showed marked stenosis in the sigmoid colon
but rejected the possibility of colon cancers. Abdomino-pelvic CT and MRI
revealed a huge abscess lying over the urinary bladder and anterior to the
uterus. Furthermore, a cervical Papanicolaou smear disclosed Actinomyces species.
We removed the intrauterine device from the patient. Subsequent high-dose
ampicillin administration led to dramatic shrinkage of the abscess and improved
the management of the bowel movement quickly. This is a successful case of
symptomatic pelvic actinomycosis that was correctly diagnosed and treated
without unnecessary surgical intervention.
