We present a case of endobronchial actinomycosis secondary to foreign-body aspiration. The patient presented with a cough and a right middle lobe infiltrate that failed to resolve with antibiotic treatment. Flexible bronchoscopy identified an endobronchial mass, and biopsy revealed evidence of actinomycosis. Finally, a foreign body was identified and removed by rigid bronchoscopy.
