At times it is difficult to diagnose a case presenting as a chronic inflammatory lesion, especially which is not responding to conventional treatment modalities. This case report describes one such case, where the patient presented with a suppurative lesion, where making a diagnosis was challenging. Same time the patient was not responsive to prescribed treatment. Looking back carefully into the history of the patient gave a big inkling, to advice for a biopsy from a nearby viable tissue around the lesion. The lesion on microscopy was confirmed as Actinomycosis. This case report describes a very interesting case with diverse microscopic presentations, attempting to unravel the mysteries often hidden in a case of Actinomycosis.
