A case of primary gastric actinomycosis presenting as a bleeding gastric tumor is reported. The diagnosis of this infection of the stomach is difficult and may often be established only by histological examination. If the disease is recognized, the prognosis is good because antibiotic treatment is very effective. Recent literature findings are reviewed and clinical and endoscopic features are compared.
