Abstract:
Lemierres syndrome is a rare and potentially fatal entity affecting otherwise healthy and young adults. The infection originates in the throat and spreads via a septic trombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein, with development of distant septic emboli. This clinical picture is characteristic but many clinicians are unaware of the condition and diagnosis is often delayed with potentially fatal consequences.
