Actinomycosis in palatine tonsil mimicking a tonsillolith: A case report

 Actinomycosis of the jaw is a well known infection characterized by a paramandibular draining sinus tract, trismus, and characteristic woody type of fibrosis. Various features of actinomycotic infections have been reported in the head and neck areas. We present a 70-year-old man of actinomycosis in palatine tonsil mimicking a tonsillolith with recurrent episodes of palatine tonsillar concretion for 10 years. (Accepted on May 25, 2011)
