Ludwig's Angina in a 5 year old child.
This is a potentially life-threatening, rapidly expanding, diffuse inflammation of the submandibular and sublingual spaces that occurs most often in young adults with dental infections. However, it can develop in children, in whom it can cause serious airway obstruction.
This child presented to our office with neck pain and swelling, fever, malaise and dysphagia. He was sent to a pediatric emergency room where he had surgical then IV antibiotic treatment.
Causative bacteria include many gram-negative and anaerobic organisms, streptococci and staphylococci.
