Actinomycosis is a rare entity causing acute or chronic infections by filamentous bacteria, Actinomyces species. It usually affects soft tissue but rarely affects bone leading to Actinomycotic osteomyelitis. We report a case of 22-year-old male clinically and radiologically diagnosed as Osteomyelitis, and histopathologically confirmed as Actinomycotic osteomyelitis. The current study also highlights the importance of histopathological examination of any clinically suspected lesion, due to low biological identification rate. Correct diagnosis of the disease avails adequate treatment and thus better prognosis.
