The Actinomyces bacteria are associated with cervicothoracic disease in immunocompromised patients; however, Actinomyces odontolyticus cervical infection with extensive spread to the mediastinum in a previously healthy patient was not reported before in Qatar. The patient underwent drainage of collections in synchrony with intravenous antibiotics and recovered with an excellent outcome.
