Actinomycosis is a rare opportunistic infection caused by an anerobic gram positive organism. Actinomyces israelii may be localized to cervicofacial, thoracic and abdominopelvic areas. Pelvic actinomycosis is observed in patients who present with prolonged use of intrauterine devices. Ureteral obstruction and subsequent hydronephrosis are rare complications of pelvic inflammatory disease. We report a case of acute renal failure with bilateral hydronephrosis as complication of pelvic actinomycosis with prolonged use of intrauterine devices in a 42-year-old female patient.(Korean J Med 69:S999-S1002, 2005)
