Severe Pneumonia and Jaundice in a Young Man: An Atypical Presentation of an Uncommon Disease. We present a patient with an atypical presentation of Fusobacterium infection, the genus responsible for Lemierre's syndrome. This syndrome, which often affects healthy, young people and can be fatal if not recognized and treated early, is defined as a history of recent oropharyngeal infection with clinical or radiological evidence of internal jugular vein thrombosis and isolation of anaerobic (...) pathogens, mainly Fusobacterium necrophorum. The history, presentation, investigations and management of the patient are described and then contrasted with the existing literature surrounding Lemierre's syndrome, once termed the 'forgotten disease'.

complete stasis of venous and arterial blood flow in the lower extremity because venous return is occluded or massive edema cuts off arterial blood flow. Venous gangrene may result. Rarely, venous clots can become infected. Jugular vein suppurative thrombophlebitis (Lemierre syndrome), a bacterial (usually anaerobic) infection of the internal jugular vein and surrounding soft tissues, may follow tonsillopharyngitis and is often complicated by bacteremia and sepsis. In septic pelvic thrombophlebitis (...) long-term complications include venous insufficiency with or without the postphlebitic syndrome. DVT occurs most commonly in the lower extremities or pelvis (see Figure: ). It can also develop in deep veins of the upper extremities (4 to 13% of DVT cases). Deep veins of the legs. Lower extremity DVT is much more likely to cause (PE), possibly because of the higher clot burden.

A vanishing disease can still happen. Lemierre's syndrome is a rare disease in the antibiotic era which is characterised by oropharyngitis, thrombophlebitis and septic metastases, but it can still occur and early recognition of its characteristic features and commencement of appropriate treatment can be life saving. The case history is described of a middle-aged man with Lemierre's syndrome who made an uneventful recovery following treatment with co-amoxiclav and metronidazole for 6 weeks.

Fusobacterium necrophorum Middle Ear Infections in Children and Related Complications: Report of 25 Cases and Literature Review. Fusobacterium necrophorum is associated with Lemierre syndrome (pharyngitis with septic thrombosis of the internal jugular veins) but it can also be involved in other head and neck infections, including sinusitis, parotitis, dental infections, and otitis media.This retrospective study analyzes a series of 25 pediatric cases of acute otitis media caused by F (...) . necrophorum and treated in our institution between 1995 and 2006.We observed 3 clinical presentations: (1) uncomplicated otitis media (44%; n = 11); (2) acute mastoiditis (40%; n = 10); and (3) otogenic variant of Lemierre syndrome (16%; n = 4) associating acute mastoiditis, suppurative thrombophlebitis of the lateral and/or cavernous sinuses, meningitis syndrome, and sometimes distant septic metastasis or extensive osteolysis of the temporal bone.

179. Diagnosis of Lemierre Syndrome by Bedside Emergency Department Ultrasound. (PubMed)

Diagnosis of Lemierre Syndrome by Bedside Emergency Department Ultrasound. Oropharyngeal infections such as pharyngitis and odontogenic abscess are routinely encountered in emergency and primary care medical practice. Lemierre syndrome is a rare but serious complication of such infections. This syndrome is characterized by penetration of the primary infection into the lateral pharyngeal space, suppurative thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein, and metastatic infections resulting from (...) septic emboli. A combination of clinical suspicion, microbiologic identification of the causative organism, and diagnostic imaging may be required to make the diagnosis. We present a case of Lemierre syndrome that was rapidly diagnosed in the Emergency Department with bedside ultrasound of the internal jugular vein. This case suggests that bedside ultrasound, performed before other radiologic imaging, may lead to earlier diagnosis and treatment of this syndrome, which historically has been associated

180. Lemierre's Syndrome: Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) Finds a New Home. (PubMed)

Lemierre's Syndrome: Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) Finds a New Home. Lemierre's syndrome is septic thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein, arising as a complication of an oropharyngeal infection. This thrombophlebitis frequently results in septic emboli to organs such as the lungs. The causative agent in most previously described cases is Fusobacterium necrophorum, an anaerobic Gram-negative organism. We present the case of an 8-year-old previously healthy girl who (...) came to the Emergency Department with a 5-day history of left-sided neck pain and was subsequently diagnosed with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) Lemierre's syndrome. MRSA has not previously been described in Lemierre's syndrome in the Emergency Medicine literature. The clinical presentation, findings, and management of the syndrome are discussed. Regardless of etiology, once the diagnosis of Lemierre's syndrome is made, long-term broad-spectrum intravenous therapy
