actinobacillosis
1. An infectious disease of cattle, domestic animals, and occasionally humans, resembling actinomycosis and caused by the bacterium Actinobacillus lignieresii.
2. A disease characterized by suppurative (causing pus) and granulomatous (inflammatory) lesions (abnormality of the skin or organs) in the respiratory tract, upper alimentary tract, skin, kidneys, joints, and other tissues.

Actinobacillus lignieresii infects cattle and sheep while actinobacillosis Equuli infects horses and pigs.

Actinobacillosis affects the soft tissues, often the tongue and cervical lymph nodes, where granulomatous swellings form and eventually break down to form abscesses.
