AbstractPrimary endobronchial actinomycosis is an exceedingly rare condition which closely mimics bronchial carcinoma both clinically and radiologically. We report the case of a middle-aged Chinese man who had right lower lobe endobronchial actinomycosis associated with inhalation of a presumed chicken bone. The patient made a complete clinical and radiological recovery after a 2 month combined course of amoxycillin and clavulanate, after removal of the foreign body, which was only detected after using contiguous computed tomography. Our experience in the management of this patient should help clinicians in the investigation and management of this rare but treatable condition.
