Resumen

Se describe un caso de botriomicosis pulmonar primaria, entidad infrecuente, caracterizada por lesión anatomopatológica semejante a la producida por actinomyces pero de etiología bacteriana. El gérmen causal era una pseudomona aeruginosa. La lesión típica asentaba intrabronquialmente. Se presentaba como condensación pulmonar y con hemoptisis persistente. Sólo hemos encontrado descritos otros 11 casos en la literatura mundial, ninguno en España.

Summary

Primary pulmonary botryomycosis is an infrequent finding. The entity is characterized by anatomopathological lesión similar to those caused by actinomyces but of bacterial etiology. The authors describe a case of primary pulmonary botryomycosis in which the causative agent was Pseudomona aeruginosa and with the caracteristic lesión located in the bronchia, which presented as pulmonary condensation with persistent hemoptysis. A revisión of the worldliterature turned up only 11 other cases, none of which in Spain.
