Abstract

We report a case of Lemierre syndrome. Although it is seen infrequently, it must be considered in patients with sore throat or dental pain, lateral neck pain, sepsis, and pulmonary symptoms. Diagnosis is based on clinical presentation, occurrence of anaerobic septicemia, radiologic evidence of internal jugular venous thrombosis, and pulmonary septic emboli.
