1/51. lemierre syndrome and acute mastoiditis.

    lemierre syndrome seldom follows an episode of pharyngotonsillitis. Characteristically, it is comprised of septic thrombosis of the internal jugular vein and bacteremia, leading to lung emboli and metastatic abscess formation. We describe lemierre syndrome that complicates an acute mastoiditis, with considerations regarding its pathogenesis and management. Despite its sporadic occurrence, awareness of lemierre syndrome is important, since early recognition reduces both the morbidity and mortality associated with it.

2/51. Lemierre's syndrome.

    Postanginal sepsis, or Lemierre's syndrome, is rare but with life-threatening potential involving mainly infants and adolescents. The morbidity or mortality is caused mainly by lack of knowledge of the syndrome. The 18-year-old boy described here developed a jugular thrombosis 7 days after an angina. fusobacterium necrophorum was isolated from the culture of the excised jugular vein. Secondary embolism involved the lungs, associated with an iliac osteomyelitis and sacroiliitis. Computed tomography was used for diagnosis and follow-up.

3/51. lemierre syndrome: forgotten but not extinct--report of four cases.

    Four cases of lemierre syndrome are reported in which metastatic abscesses resulted from septic thrombosis of the internal jugular vein secondary to bacterial pharyngitis. While chest radiographic findings were nonspecific, results of computed tomography (CT) of the thorax in each case were highly suggestive of septic pulmonary emboli. Internal jugular venous thrombosis was demonstrated at ultrasonography and contrast material-enhanced CT.

4/51. Anaerobic septicaemia by fusobacterium necrophorum: Lemierre's syndrome.

    Lemierre's syndrome is characterized by acute pharyngotonsillitis with secondary thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein which is complicated by multiple metastatic foci of infections. This syndrome is caused by fusobacterium necrophorum in healthy young persons and is extremely rare in occurrence. A pre-school child with Lemierre's syndrome is reported. The diagnostic and therapeutic aspects are emphasized in order to sensitize physicians to this uncommon condition.

5/51. lemierre syndrome: magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomographic appearance.

    lemierre syndrome consists of septic thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein secondary to oropharyngeal infection, usually with fusobacterium necrophorum. Septic metastatic emboli and distant infection are characteristic. We describe the imaging appearance of lemierre syndrome in an adolescent female by both magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography. This case illustrates the rapid onset and characteristic progression of the rare syndrome of Lemierre. In addition, we used magnetic resonance imaging to effectively distinguish between inflammatory venous thrombosis and abscess, thus avoiding surgery in our patient. Early directed antibiotic therapy is mandatory to ensure good outcome.

6/51. Lemierre's syndrome: a complication of acute oropharyngitis.

    Lemierre's syndrome is a recognized but infrequently seen complication of acute oropharyngitis. In this case report the patient presented with acute sore throat that led to a bacteraemia with internal jugular vein thrombosis and subsequent cranial nerve palsies.

7/51. Thoracic complications of lemierre syndrome.

    lemierre syndrome is a severe, septicemic illness most commonly caused by the anaerobic Gram-negative bacillus fusobacterium necrophorum. It is characterized by an acute oropharyngeal infection, with secondary septic thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein and frequent metastatic infections. This report of a patient with the lemierre syndrome is complemented by a review of the literature on the subject.

8/51. Lemierre's syndrome presenting as multiple lung abscesses.

    Lemierre's syndrome is thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein (IJV), complicating an oropharingeal infection. The causative organism is Fusobacterium, an anaerobic bacillus, and the syndrome typically occurs in previously healthy teenagers and young adults. Thromboembolic metastases are a common sequela, and the lungs are most frequently affected. We present a case of a 25-year-old woman, who presented with multiple lung abscesses, in whom IJV thrombophlebitis was subsequently noted.

9/51. Lemierre's syndrome with spondylitis and pulmonary and gluteal abscesses associated with mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia.

    Lemierre's syndrome, a systemic anaerobic infection caused by fusobacterium necrophorum, is characterized by an acute oropharyngeal infection, septic thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular veins, sepsis, and multiple metastatic infections. It commonly leads to pulmonary parenchymal abscesses and occasionally to septic arthritis, osteomyelitis, or liver or spleen abscesses. Reported here is a case of spondylitis and pulmonary and gluteal abscesses that occurred as part of a classic presentation of Lemierre's syndrome. Treatment with imipenem and clindamycin was successful.

10/51. Lemierre's syndrome.

    This is a case report of Lemierre's syndrome in a 17-year-old male patient. Lemierre's disease consists of suppurative thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein (SIJVT) in the presence of oropharyngeal infection and can be complicated by septic pulmonary embolism. Other causes of SIJVT include deep neck infections and central venous catheterization. The disease usually results from Gram-negative anaerobic organisms such as fusobacterium necrophorum.
