Pulmonary actinomycosis is one of the rare cases in which a mass in the lung is detected and the case is caused by kinds of actinomycetes. The diagnosis is difficult because of the presence of nonspecific clinical and radiological findings, and many cases result in unnecessary surgery with malignancy pre-diagnosis. A 38-year-old woman applied doctor for continuous coughing, coughing with pink mucous and back pain complications for the last month. Bronchoscopy and EBUS were performed on the patient. Since no results were obtained, the patient was operated on. Pulmonary actinomycosis was diagnosed after an upper right lobectomy.
