Cervicofacial actinomycosis (AM) is a well-documented entity; however, primary AM of the submandibular gland is infrequent. The diagnosis is difficult due to its nonspecific clinical presentation and it usually mimics chronic granulomatous infection or malignant lesion. We report the case of a young female with AM of submandibular gland, presented as recurrent infection of submandibular gland, underwent its excision and confirmed on microscopy as Actinomyces.
