Lumpy jaw is an extremely rare disease with few cases reported in the literature. This report presents the case of a lumpy jaw with mandibular pathological fracture associated with actinomycosis osteomyelitis, due to a dental infection. The case was managed surgically. An overview of the entity including literature review of the clinical presentation, diagnosis and emerging treatment criteria was discussed. Clinicians should be aware of the possibility of actinomycosis arising in the setting of dental infection, and the importance of bone biopsy and cultures in arriving at a definitive and timely diagnosis.
