41. Septic thrombosis of the internal jugular vein: Lemierre's syndrome revisited. (PubMed)

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. An oropharynx primary infection site

43. A Case of Lemierre Syndrome Secondary to Otitis Media and Mastoiditis (PubMed)

A Case of Lemierre Syndrome Secondary to Otitis Media and Mastoiditis Lemierre's syndrome is a rare clinical condition that generally develops secondary to oropharyngeal infection caused by Fusobacterium necrophorum, which is an anaerobic bacteria. A 62-year-old patient with diabetes mellitus presented with internal jugular vein and sigmoid sinus-transverse sinus thrombophlebitis, accompanying otitis media and mastoiditis that developed after an upper airway infection. Interestingly, there were (...) air bubbles in both the internal jugular vein and transverse sinus. Vancomycin and meropenem were started and a right radical mastoidectomy was performed. The patient's clinical picture completely resolved in 14 days. High mortality and morbidity may be prevented with a prompt diagnosis of Lemierre's syndrome.

44. Lemierre syndrome: More than "the forgotten disease". (PubMed)

Lemierre syndrome: More than "the forgotten disease". A 54-year-old woman presented with fever, spasmodic torticollis, ptosis, and chemosis in her left eye. CT venous angiography revealed cavernous sinus thrombosis (CST) and left internal jugular vein thrombosis (IJVT) (figure, A), cervical MRI detected a retropharyngeal abscess and epidural empyema (figure, B and C), and chest X-ray showed multiple pulmonary opacities (figure, D). The clinical/radiologic picture, due to anaerobic septicemia (...) , was consistent with Lemierre syndrome (LS), the so-called "forgotten disease."(1) Extensive neuroimaging studies are mandatory to detect an abscess in the neck of patients with CST and IJVT for early diagnosis and treatment. LS is still relevant today.

45. Lemierre's syndrome presenting to the ED: rapidly fatal sepsis caused by methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus Staphylococcus protein A type t044. (PubMed)

Lemierre's syndrome presenting to the ED: rapidly fatal sepsis caused by methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus Staphylococcus protein A type t044. We describe the case of a fatal septic illness in a previously healthy young man caused by community-acquired methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus of Staphylococcus protein A (spa) type t044. The patient developed a devastating Lemierre-like syndrome with extensive thrombosis of inferior vena cava and iliac veins with multiple (...) metastatic septic emboli of the lungs. He presented to the emergency department with rapidly progressing sepsis followed by multiple organ dysfunction syndrome. Recognition of such virulent community-acquired strains is of great importance because they could prove to be emerging pathogens for life-threatening diseases.

46. A 10-month-old with Lemierre syndrome complicated by purulent pericarditis. (PubMed)

A 10-month-old with Lemierre syndrome complicated by purulent pericarditis. Lemierre syndrome is a potentially life-threatening septic thrombophlebitis associated with a neck infection. We present a case of a 10-month-old female infant with Lemierre syndrome complicated by thrombotic strokes and purulent pericarditis. A healthy 10-month-old female infant presented to the pediatric emergency department of our tertiary care center complaining of 5 days of fever to 105°F and 1 day of neck (...) stiffness and decreased oral intake. In the pediatric emergency department, she developed septic shock, requiring vasopressor support, endotracheal intubation, and broad-spectrum antibiotics. A computed tomographic scan demonstrated a neck abscess associated with a right internal jugular thrombus and septic emboli to her lungs and brain. This constellation was consistent with Lemierre syndrome. Further studies demonstrated the thrombus extended into her left ventricular outflow tract. She was emergently

49. Lemierre's syndrome: Diagnosis in the emergency department. (PubMed)

Lemierre's syndrome: Diagnosis in the emergency department. A 15-year-old boy presented with signs of sepsis and a history of sore throat, fevers and shortness of breath. Full examination revealed an erythematous oropharynx and mild tonsillar swelling. He rapidly deteriorated requiring admission to intensive care. Blood cultures grew Fusobacterium necrophorum and an ultrasound scan performed for left neck tenderness confirmed internal jugular vein thrombosis. He was diagnosed with Lemierre's (...) syndrome. This condition results from pharyngitis or tonsillitis with bacterial spread to the lateral pharyngeal space. Internal jugular vein thrombosis ensues with septic emboli and metastatic infections that most frequently involve the lungs. Although increasing in incidence, diagnosis is often delayed. We discuss why and describe its clinical presentation, investigations of choice and treatment strategies.© 2012 The Authors. EMA © 2012 Australasian College for Emergency Medicine and Australasian

Acute parotitis due to MRSA causing Lemierre’s syndrome We report a case of septic thrombophlebitis of the right internal jugular vein linked with right-sided acute parotitis caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in a patient who had recently undergone a pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy. Our case is unique because acute parotitis is a less-recognized cause of Lemierre's syndrome, never previously linked with MRSA infection in this context. We review (...) the literature on diagnosis and management of Lemierre's syndrome caused by acute parotitis. Prompt diagnosis and aggressive antibiotics ensured a favourable outcome.

54. Lemierre’s Syndrome (PubMed)

Lemierre’s Syndrome Lemierre's syndrome is a rare, life-threatening condition, which may be fatal if not properly treated. This disease refers to thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein, which is the result of bacterial sore throat infection (usually in the form of pharyngitis) that extends into the parapharyngeal space. However, it can result from other infective foci in the ear, nose, parotid glands, and paranasal sinuses. The bacteria typically responsible is Fusobacterium (...) necrophorum. Here, we describe a case of Lemierre's syndrome that occurred in a 20-year-old female who presented with neurological deficits following a two-week history of upper respiratory tract infection. Our case displayed typical findings of this rare condition with a review of the previous literature and also to emphasize the importance of high index of suspicion to reduce the mortality of this disease.

56. Lemierre's and Lemierre's-like syndromes in association with infectious mononucleosis. (PubMed)

Lemierre's and Lemierre's-like syndromes in association with infectious mononucleosis. This study aimed to review cases of Lemierre's and Lemierre's-like syndromes in paediatric patients, to examine a possible association with Epstein-Barr virus as a predisposing factor, and to assess the impact of this virus on the severity of illness.We performed a retrospective analysis of data from the in-patient database at Winthrop University Hospital, from January 2001 to October 2007. We reviewed (...) clinical and laboratory findings as well as the outcome of infection in patients aged 21 years or less with a diagnosis of Lemierre's syndrome. An additional case of Lemierre's-like syndrome was also included. The illness severity and duration of in-patient management of those testing positive for heterophile antibody were then compared with the same parameters in patients who tested negative.Of the five patients diagnosed with Lemierre's syndrome, two had concomitant acute infection with Epstein-Barr

58. Lemierre’s syndrome: Case report and brief literature review (PubMed)

Lemierre’s syndrome: Case report and brief literature review Lemierre's syndrome has been shown to be increasing in incidence in the past 20 years with one popular suggesting that said rise occurred from less aggressive antibacterial coverage. We report a case of Lemierre's syndrome and also reviewed the 15 most recent case reports. A previously healthy 25 year old male who initially developed sore throat and flu-like symptoms, was prescribed antibacterials as an outpatient (...) but was hospitalized for worsening symptoms. He was later diagnosed with Lemierre's syndrome and improved clinically with IV antimicrobials alone. From our concise literature review, we determined that a decrease in antibiotic prescriptions may not fully explain why the incidence of Lemierre's has been increasing. Thus, future research should be focused in evaluating possible worsening susceptibilities to antibiotics and improvements on detection. We also advise physicians to be aware of the signs and symptoms
