Abstract

Actinomycosis is an uncommon chronic infectious disease caused by Actinomyces. There are three distinct forms of the condition, namely cervicofascial, thoracic, and abdominal; the hepatic variety is an unusual form of abdominal actinomycosis, accounting for about 15% of cases of this type. Many reports of actinomycosis have been published, but few have detailed the MR findings of hepatic actinomycosis. We describe the contrast-enhanced CT and MR findings in one case of hepatic actinomycosis.
