Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Two cases of necrobacillosis or post-anginal septicemia (Lemierre's syndrome) due to Fusobacterium necrophorum are described. The first case in a young adult was complicated by thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein, lung abscesses and skin involvement. The second case was in a 2-year-old child, which is exceptional. The primary focus was possibly otitis media. In a third patient with multiple metastases of colon carcinoma, Fusobacterium necrophorum septicemia was diagnosed during a bout of fever 36 hours before death.
