Actinomycosis is a rare bacterial infection caused by Actinomyces species, gram-positive, microaerophilic bacteria, which, under normal circumstances, colonize oral flora within gingival cervices and tonsillar crypts, gastrointestinal tract and genital microbiota. Firstly in humans, A. israelii was isolated and described in 1878 by James Israel. So far, more than 30 species of Actinomyces have been identified in humans, out of which most frequently isolated species in infections is Actinomyces israelii.
