Abstract: The use of anti-tumour necrosis factor (TNF) agents has expanded significantly over the past few years, particularly for rheumatological diseases and Crohn's disease. A number of associated opportunistic infections have been observed as a result of suppression of T cell-mediated immunity, the most frequent being tuberculosis. We report the first case of pulmonary actinomycosis in a patient receiving regular infusions of infliximab, an anti-TNF agent, for Crohn's disease.
