24. Septic thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein, a case of Lemierre's syndrome Full Text available with Trip Pro

Septic thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein, a case of Lemierre's syndrome An 18-year-old gentleman with a history of recurrent tonsillitis presented to the emergency room complaining of worsening sore throat. He was found to have a peritonisillar abscess, and imaging revealed a non-occlusive left internal jugular vein thrombosis. Lemierre's syndrome is a rare, potentially fatal condition characterized by internal jugular vein thrombosis with septicemia following an acute oropharyngeal (...) infection. While anticoagulation is the mainstay of treatment of deep venous thromboembolism (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), the use of therapy is controversial in septic thrombophlebitis. This is counterintuitive since a common reported complication is pulmonary emboli. Early in the course of thrombophlebitis, while the thrombus is firmly attached, antibiotics may be all that is necessary to treat the condition.

26. The long shadow of lemierre's syndrome. (Abstract)

The long shadow of lemierre's syndrome. Lemierre's syndrome is a rare and feared complication of pharyngitis, occurring most commonly in adolescents and young adults. It is typically defined by the constellation of septic internal jugular vein thrombophlebitis, pulmonary and other septic emboli, and sterilesite infection by Fusobacterium necrophorum. The rarity and severity of Lemierre's syndrome has made it an attractive subject for case reports but there is a paucity of evidence to inform (...) areas of persistent uncertainty. In recent years, heightened attention and controversy has focused upon speculation that a purported rise in the incidence of Lemierre's syndrome is due to reduced antibiotic prescribing for respiratory tract infections, that F. necrophorum is an under-appreciated cause of acute tonsillopharyngitis and that testing and targeted treatment would prevent cases of Lemierre's syndrome.© 2017 The British Infection Association.

the antibiotics. The Danish data suggest that in the 15-25 age group 1/70,000 will develop the Lemierre Syndrome. Even when patients survive the infection is likely equivalent to endocarditis (or perhaps even worse). We must develop a better strategy for adolescent sore throats. Reading about another death or even another patient who spends a month in the hospital including a week in the ICU for a disease that we might be able to prevent is tragic.

29. Severe Sepsis Associated with Lemierre's Syndrome: A Rare but Life-Threatening Disease Full Text available with Trip Pro

Severe Sepsis Associated with Lemierre's Syndrome: A Rare but Life-Threatening Disease Background. The incidence of Lemierre's syndrome has increased in the past decade. This posttonsillitis complication may be life threatening. Case Presentation. A 19-year-old patient was admitted to Surgical Intensive Care Unit of a French University Hospital for high fever, low blood pressure, and haemoptysis following a sore throat episode. Blood analysis revealed a thrombopenia, an acute renal failure (...) , and an elevated lactate serum. Fusobacterium necrophorum was found in blood cultures. Computed tomography of the neck and lungs confirmed the diagnosis of Lemierre's syndrome: pleural effusions, bilateral lung infiltrates, and an internal jugular vein thrombosis. Fluid administration and antibiotic treatment were quickly initiated. Patient left the unit four days after his admission without any organ dysfunction. Conclusion. Lemierre's syndrome may lead to multiorgan dysfunction and should be rapidly

30. Pediatric Disseminated Lemierre Syndrome in 2 Infants: Not Too Young for an Ancient Disease. (Abstract)

Pediatric Disseminated Lemierre Syndrome in 2 Infants: Not Too Young for an Ancient Disease. The Lemierre syndrome is characterized by an oropharyngeal infection, thrombosis of the internal jugular vein, and multiple septic metastases. Fusobacterium necrophorum is a common cause of it. The incidence is 0.6 to 2.3 cases per million with a mortality rate of 4% to 18%. Its fast evolution and the possibility of severe complications require a high index of suspicion for its diagnosis. We present 2 (...) infants with Lemierre syndrome. The younger case, a 6-month-old infant, was fully recovered. In the other side, and despite an aggressive therapy, an 18-month-old infant developed cerebral palsy. We also provide a short literature review with a focus on clinical presentation and differential diagnosis in order to initiate an early and adequate therapy.

31. Lemierre Syndrome of the Femoral Vein, Related to Fusobacterium necrophorum Abscess of Vastus Lateralis. (Abstract)

Lemierre Syndrome of the Femoral Vein, Related to Fusobacterium necrophorum Abscess of Vastus Lateralis. Lemierre syndrome is an uncommon, potentially lethal disorder combining acute oropharyngeal infection caused by Fusobacterium necrophorum, with jugular vein suppurative thrombosis, complicated by anaerobic sepsis with secondary multiple metastatic abscesses. Optimal treatment outcome with reduced or absence of sequelae can be achieved with early diagnosis.We present a clinical case (...) of Fusobacterium necrophorum abscess complicated with femoral vein thrombosis, called atypical localization of Lemierre syndrome. This uncommon disease was diagnosed on the basis of clinical, biological, and imaging tests, with a favorable outcome, after a well-orientated antibiotic and surgical course of therapy. WHY SHOULD AN EMERGENCY PHYSICIAN BE AWARE OF THIS?: Since its first description in 1936, Lemierre syndrome has been reported in locations other than its initial oropharyngeal site. Because optimal

Fusobacterium necrophorum Pharyngitis Complicated by Lemierre's Syndrome We report the case of an 18-year-old woman who was referred to our outpatient clinic because of a 2-week history of sore throat, high fever, and neck tenderness unresponsive to a 7-day amoxicillin/clavulanic acid course. Infectious mononucleosis was initially suspected, but an extremely high value of procalcitonin and clinical deterioration suggested a bacterial sepsis, prompting the patient admission to our internal (...) medicine ward. Blood cultures were positive for Fusobacterium necrophorum. CT scan detected a parapharyngeal abscess, a right internal jugular vein thrombosis, and multiple bilateral lung abscesses, suggesting the diagnosis of Lemierre's syndrome. The patient was treated with a 2-week course of metronidazole and meropenem with a gradual clinical recovery. She was thereafter discharged home with metronidazole and amoxicillin/clavulanic acid for 14 days and a 3-month course of enoxaparin, experiencing

Extensive thoracolumbosacral vertebral osteomyelitis after Lemierre syndrome. To present a unique case of multilevel vertebral osteomyelitis after Lemierre syndrome.A previously healthy 27-year-old man presented in the Emergency Department in septic shock because of Lemierre syndrome for which he was subsequently treated with intravenous benzylpenicillin for 2 months. Two and a half months later, the patient was readmitted with severe back pain without neurological deficits or fever. Imaging (...) revealed an extensive vertebral osteomyelitis of the complete thoracic, lumbar and sacral spine.Although the blood cultures obtained at the initial admission for Lemierre syndrome revealed Fusobacterium species and Streptococcus milleri, the cultures from the spinal biopsies remained negative. Histology of the spinal biopsies showed a purulent sclerosing osteomyelitis. The patient was successfully treated with intravenous piperacillin and tazobactam. Despite persisting back pain, no recurrence

Septic thrombosis of the internal jugular vein: Lemierre's syndrome revisited. Study of the clinical evolution of a primary ear, nose, and throat infection complicated by septic thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein.Retrospective case-control study.From 1998 to 2010, 23 patients at our institution were diagnosed with a septic thrombosis of the internal jugular vein. Diagnostics included microbiologic analysis and imaging such as computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging (...) , and ultrasound. Therapy included broad-spectrum antibiotics, surgery of the primary infectious lesion, and postoperative anticoagulation. The patients were retrospectively analyzed.The primary infection sites were found in the middle ear (11), oropharynx (8), sinus (3), and oral cavity (1). Fourteen patients needed intensive care unit treatment for a mean duration of 6 days. Seven patients were intubated, and two developed severe acute respiratory distress syndrome.
