Thoracic actinomycosis can resemble bronchogenic carcinoma in its clinical presentation and radiographic appearance. We report a case of pulmonary actinomycosis caused by Actinomyces meyeri in which hematogenous dissemination caused multiple brain abscesses resembling metastastic lung cancer. The correct diagnosis was made by thin-needle aspiration of a pleura-based lung mass. The pathogen isolated was further identified with the use of 16S rDNA sequencing.
