Lemierre's syndrome

Why am I posting about this “zebra?” Well, Fusobacterium necrophorum infections may be more common in adolescents and young adults than previously suspected. There also seems to be a rise in the incidence of new diagnoses – and we are not sure why. Finally, it can make patients very sick, and it presents first like garden variety pharyngitis (think strep and mono). It should always be on your radar in the ill adolescent with a history of sore throat, fever and neck pain.

A podcast on strep pharyngitis? Sure!

This may be a bit hard to swallow, but not every disease process in the Emergency Department is exciting. Streptococcal pharyngitis is an incredibly common condition, especially in the Pediatric Emergency Department and I wanted to take this opportunity to answer some common questions. Who knows, perhaps after listening to this edition of PEM Currents you too will start treating strep throat with once a day dosing of Amoxicillin.
