221. Fusobacterium necrophorum-induced sepsis: an unusual case of Lemierre's syndrome. (Abstract)

, and after a further 2 weeks was discharged home from hospital. This case highlights the need to raise the awareness of 'the forgotten disease': Lemierre's syndrome. Its diagnosis may, as in this case, be confounded by a lack of symptoms of pharyngitis at the time of presentation, and end-organ dysfunction associated with severe sepsis, possibly suggesting an alternative source of infection. As appropriate antibiotics reduce mortality dramatically, clinicians need to be alert to Lemierre's syndrome (...) Fusobacterium necrophorum-induced sepsis: an unusual case of Lemierre's syndrome. Classical Lemierre's syndrome is characterized by severe sepsis with metastatic abscess formation in young, previously fit people from a primary head or neck focus. The causative organisms are the anaerobic fusobacteria, most commonly Fusobacterium necrophorum. We describe the evaluation, therapeutic interventions and management of a patient with Lemierre's syndrome who presented in septic shock with multiple

223. Fusobacterium necrophorum as the cause of recurrent sore throat: comparison of isolates from persistent sore throat syndrome and Lemierre's disease. (Abstract)

Fusobacterium necrophorum as the cause of recurrent sore throat: comparison of isolates from persistent sore throat syndrome and Lemierre's disease. Fusobacterium necrophorum is a well established cause of Lemierre's disease (LD); a syndrome characterised by severe sore throat, septicaemia, multiple abscesses and jugular vein thrombosis. There is no published data concerning the role of F. necrophorum in recurrent sore throats. As the result of an index case of persistent sore throat (...) attributable to this organism being diagnosed in our laboratory, a subsequent case controlled study (not yet published) isolated F. necrophorum from 21% (P=0.0001) of cases of persistent, recurrent and chronic sore throats. The object of this study was to compare isolates of F. necrophorum from cases of systemic disease with isolates from cases of persistent sore throat syndrome (PSTS) to ascertain whether strains of similar type were responsible for both throat and systemic disease or whether different

224. Increased diagnosis of Lemierre syndrome and other Fusobacterium necrophorum infections at a Children's Hospital. (Abstract)

Increased diagnosis of Lemierre syndrome and other Fusobacterium necrophorum infections at a Children's Hospital. To assess the apparent increase in the diagnosis of Lemierre syndrome (LS) and other Fusobacterium necrophorum infections at a large children's hospital. Infections with F necrophorum ranged from peritonsillar abscess to potentially fatal LS. LS is an oropharyngeal infection characterized by septic thrombophlebitis of head and neck veins, complicated by dissemination of septic

226. Critical care nurses be aware: Lemierre's syndrome is on the rise. (Abstract)

Critical care nurses be aware: Lemierre's syndrome is on the rise. Lemierre's syndrome (LS) typically occurs in previously healthy young adolescents and young adults who become acutely ill following an attack of pharyngotonsillitis. Also known as post anginal sepsis, those afflicted develop pyrexia, rigours and multiple metastatic abscesses that lead to septic thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein. In the pre-antibiotic era this particularly virulent syndrome had a mortality rate (...) and mortality. This paper discusses the aetiology, pathophysiology, bacteriology, diagnosis and management aspects of this syndrome. A case study of a young woman is presented to illustrate the complexity of the condition, and highlight how early diagnosis and prompt initiation of appropriate intravenous antibiotic therapy ensured a favourable clinical outcome.

at disease presentation and the outcomes of infection. Given the potentially life-threatening thromboembolic complications of this disorder, we reviewed our single-institutional experience with pediatric Lemierre's and Lemierre's-like syndromes (LALLS) from within the context of a larger cohort study of thrombosis in children.Children who were aged from birth to 21 years and had received a diagnosis of JVT and Lemierre's syndrome at the Children's Hospital (Denver, CO) between 2001 and 2005 were (...) Lemierre's and Lemierre's-like syndromes in children: survival and thromboembolic outcomes. Lemierre's syndrome, or jugular vein thrombosis (JVT) associated with anaerobic infection of the head and neck and frequently complicated by septic pulmonary embolism (PE), has historically been described as a disease of young adults. In recent years, an increasing number of case reports of childhood Lemierre's syndrome have been published, focusing mostly on the clinical and laboratory findings
