Abstract

<p align=\"justify\">Primary actinomycosis of salivary glands is rare. In its typical suppurative form, pus containing colonies of organisms in the form of \'sulphur\' granules\' will eventually discharge through multiple discharging sinuses. However, actinomycosis may also mimic other disease process particularly neoplasia, resulting in diagnostic difficulty. A case of actinomycosis occurring in the minor salivary glands of the cheek is reported. it presented as a painless, firm and circumscribed swelling resembling that of a benign neoplasia. The lesion was excised and histopatholgical features typical of actinomycosis were found. Healing was uneventful and there was complete resolution without antibiotic therapy.</p>
