Actinomycosis is considered the most misdiagnosed dis­ease usually involving the cervico fascial region, thorax, abdomen and occasionally also the pelvis, usually in case of the females using intra-uterine devices. The involve­ment of the urinary tract is rare and primary actinomyco­sis of urinary bladder is still rarer. The disease is usually diagnosed by demonstration of the discharged sulphur granules. In our case this was not the usual presentation and the patient was first diagnosed as having appendicu­lar mass and then bladder malignancy. The excised mass demonstrated features suggestive of actinomycosis.
