Disease Ontology:8 A commensal bacterial infectious disease that results in infection, which is characterized by contiguous spread, suppurative and granulomatous inflammation, and formation of multiple abscesses and sinus tracts that may discharge sulfur granules, has material basis in actinomyces israelii, has material basis in actinomyces gerencseriae, has material basis in actinomyces naeslundii, has material basis in actinomyces odontolyticus, has material basis in actinomyces viscosus, has material basis in actinomyces meyeri, has material basis in propionibacterium propionicum, which require a break in the integrity of the mucous membranes and the presence of devitalized tissue to invade deeper body structures.

MalaCards: Actinomycosis, also known as madura foot due to actinomadura, is related to chronic canaliculitis and farmer's lung. An important gene associated with Actinomycosis is APOH (apolipoprotein H (beta-2-glycoprotein I)). Affiliated tissues include lymph node, brain and spinal cord.

NIH Rare Diseases:43 Actinomycosis is a chronic bacterial infection that commonly affects the face and neck. it is usually caused by an anaerobic bacteria called actinomyces israelii. actinomyces are normal inhabitants of the mouth, gastrointestinal tract, and female genital tract, and do not cause an infection unless there is a break in the skin or mucosa. the infection usually occurs in the face and neck, but can sometimes occur in the chest, abdomen, pelvis, or other areas of the body. the infection is not contagious. last updated: 4/28/2011
