Se determino la presencia o no de Actinomyces viscosus, y de la cantidad de este aislada del medio de cultivo, siguiendo el mismo parametro que para la de Actinomyces sp.
Para hacer el cultivo se tomo el cono de papel y el hisopo y se procedio a sembrar en un medio de tioglicolato, para anaerobios y se dejo incubar durante 14 dias; posterior a ello se hizo el repique en Agar Sangre para anerobios CDC para permitir el aislamiento optimo de los Actinomyces sp; se identificaron macroscopicamente las colonias de Actinomyces sp que cumplieran con los siguientes criterios: Colonias medianas lisas, blanquecinas, y se identifico la presencia de Actinomyces viscosus mediante cepa referencia para Actinomyces ATCC 15987.
salivarius ATCC 25975, Actinomyces viscosus ATCC15987, ATCC15988, ATCC19246 and Lactobacillus casei ATCC7469 were from laboratory stock cultures of the Department of Oral Pathology, Asahi University School of Dentistry, Japan.
The diagnosis was established when Actinomyces viscosus was isolated from pus obtained from the right maxillary antrum by intranasal antrostomy.
