Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Modern dental care and use of antibiotics for oral infections have made Ludwig's angina rare. To avoid acute airway obstruction, emergency physicians must be able to rapidly recognize and treat this condition. A typical case of Ludwig's angina is presented, followed by a review of clinical findings and therapeutic modalities. Emphasis is made on airway management, antibiotics, and surgical drainage.
