Lemierre's Syndrome: A Case Report.

Cureus 2021 Apr 27;13(4):e14713. Epub 2021 Apr 27.

Internal Medicine, AdventHealth Florida, Sebring, USA.

Lemierre's syndrome is a condition in which an oropharyngeal infection progresses to sepsis and thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein. Although the incidence of this syndrome has fallen dramatically since the widespread use of antibiotic therapy to treat streptococcal pharyngitis, it should still be suspected in otherwise healthy young patients presenting with the triad of prolonged pharyngitis, lateral neck pain, and septic symptoms. In this report, we explore a unique case of Lemierre's syndrome complicated by hypercoagulability and ineffective initial antibiotic therapy. Read More

Management of Lemierre syndrome.

Minerva Med 2021 05 14. Epub 2021 May 14.

Clinic of Angiology, University Hospital Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland.

Lemierre syndrome is a rare form of septic thrombophlebitis of the head and neck veins, most typically the internal jugular vein, which affects otherwise healthy adolescents and young adults after an oropharyngitis or other local infection and is characterized by multiple septic embolization. Despite treatment, Lemierre syndrome displays a high rate of in-hospital complications that include thrombus progression and new peripheral septic embolization, and it can be fatal or cause disabling sequelae. The mainstay of treatment is antibiotic therapy; anticoagulation is often used, but its role is controversial. Read More
