A Case of Gastric Actinomycosia after Gastrectomy for Early Gastric Cancer

Abstract

Primary gastric actinomycosis is an extremely rare disease and less than 20 cases are reported in literature. We experienced a case of gastric actinomycosis in the 63-year-old woman who had subtotal gastrectomy for early gastric cancer(type IIc) 7 month ago. Endoscopic biopsy from elevated lesion on stoma was found to show the neutrophilic infiltration and sulfur granule. She placed on tetracycline for 30 days. Follow up endoscopy showed no abnormality. We report this case with literature review. (Koresn J Gastrointest Endosc 18: 757~ 760, 1996)
