• We reviewed the reported experience with actinomycosis otomastoiditis in the international literature, along with a recent case from our experience. All recently reported cases presented with persistent drainage and partial response to multiple courses of antibiotics. Diagnosis was uniformly made postoperatively, and the outcome was excellent following a prolonged course of antibiotic treatment.
