A pulmonary actinomycosis is a chronic suppurative disease which leads to abscess formation and fibrosis it was caused by aspiration of contaminated material from to mouth or oropharynx. Recently pulmonary actinomycosis is very rare by widespread use of antibiotics. Clinically, patients with pulmonary actinomycosis initially experience nonproductive coughing and low grade fever, but pulmonary complaints can be minimal. We report a case of pulmonary actinomycosis associated with hemoptysis which was confirmed by lobectomy with a review of literature.
