Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pasteurella multocida is a gram-negative coccobacillus that primarily affects animals. P multocida infections in humans are usually associated with animal contact. To the best of our knowledge, only 7 cases of P multocida epiglottitis have been previously reported in the English-language literature; none of these cases occurred in a patient with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. We describe what we believe is the first reported case of P multocida epiglottitis in a patient with chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and we review the previous reports of this rare entity.
