Spinal actinomycosis: A rare disease|
Dua, Rakesh K.; Bhat, Dhananjaya I. & Indira, Devi B.
Actinomycosis is an indolent, slowly progressive infection caused by Actinomyces species. Of human actinomycosis, the spinal form is rare and actinomycosis-related spinal neurological deficit is uncommon. We report two cases with cervical and dorsal actinomycosis and one of them with spinal neurological deficit.
