A rare case of primary renal actinomycosis is presented. Difficulties in diagnosis are discussed, main differentiation being from hydro or pyonephrosis, tuberculosis and tumour. Nephrectomy has to be resorted to in the absence of a definite diagnosis. Examination of pus and histology finally confirm the diagnosis. The patient responded well to penicillin and other broad spectrum antibiotics and prognosis was good.
