223. 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
