Actinomycosis, or lumpy jaw, is an important cause of economic losses in livestock because of its widespread occurrence and poor response to the routine clinical treatment. The present study describes a typical case of bovine actinomycosis in a 2 year cross bred heifer with a hard swelling at the level of second molar teeth on right ramus of mandible. Halitosis was also present. Tentative diagnosis was made through clinical signs. Carefull exploration of pus revealed a single whitish-yellow pinhead sized sulphur granule. Antibiotic therapy of broad-spectrum antibiotic was administered intramuscularly for five days.
