Cervicofacial actinomycosis is the most common type of this disease and the type which is most readily amenable to combined medical and surgical treatment. No attempt is made to review the literature; this case is presented because it is interesting, and unusual in that an embedded foreign body was present and no sinus formation developed.
A 30 year old private was admitted to Army Hospital on November 8, 1945 complaining of painless swelling of the glands in the left side of his neck.
Family History: Non-contributory.
Past History: Patient was born and reared in East Orange, N. J.,
