Introduction

Actinomyces species form part of the normal mucosal flora of humans and many animals and are opportunist pathogens involved in periodontal infections, soft tissue abscesses, or actinomycosis. Management of established actinomycosis usually demands surgical intervention and/ or long-term aggressive antimicrobial therapy. However, clinical diagnosis and confirmation by microbiological culture and conventional identification methods are each notoriously problematical. In recent years, the application of molecular techniques has greatly improved the classification and identification of members of this genus. In the future, direct detection of Actinomyces spp. in clinical materials with specific DNA probes may overcome many of the traditional clinical diagnostic problems.
