There are only a few scientific articles describing the observations of visceral actinomycosis in clinical cases. Descriptions of sacrococcygeal and perianalarea actinomycosis are practically does not occur. The results of examination and treatment the 54 patients with actinomycosis of sacrococcygeal and perianal areas were analyzed.
