This study is about a 43-year-old woman with anterior abdominal wall actinomycosis that appeared after abdominal trauma by dropping. The histopathological examination revealed an organized parietal hematoma with Actinomyces israelii colonies. The evolution was favorable under the treatment with Penicillin G. 5000000 International Units administered by intravenous infusion every 6 hours for 4 weeks and with orally administred Ospen for eight weeks more. In conclusion, the combined surgical drainage with antibiotic treatment proved to be an optimal therapy for patients with abdominal actinomycosis.
