BACKGROUND: Chest pain is one of the common presenting symptoms encountered in an emergency department. Prompt history taking and careful clinical examination do help to differentiate cardiac chest pain from other causes. Mondor's disease is a rare cause of chest pain which is often underdiagnosed due to lack of awareness. Mondor's disease is a condition characterized by thrombophlebitis of the superficial veins of breast and anterior chest wall. The diagnosis is often made clinically...

Lemierre's syndrome is a rare disease of the head and neck, characterized by an initial infection, usually within the oropharynx, which can develop into a septic thrombophlebitis. It can involve the jugular vein, facial veins and respiratory tract. A 7-year-old child attended our institution with a 1-week history of fever and cough. Initial imaging demonstrated a large left sided empyema with multiple cavitating lung lesions and persisting pneumothoraces secondary to the development of a bronchopleural fistula...

Thromboangiitis obliterans is an occlusive vasculopathy affecting small- and medium-size arteries. It can result in severe ischemic status. Thrombophlebitis can be associated. The exact etiology has still to be elucidated. Smoking is the main contributing factor. Diagnosis is based on clinic and paraclinic context, as well as exclusion of other vascular pathologies. Its management consists in complete smoking cessation and instauration of vasodilator treatment. Revascularization is an option that has to be evaluated on a case by case basis...

Lemierre's syndrome is also known as postangina septicemia, which is commonly caused by Fusobacterium necrophorum also known as Necrobacillus and also by other microorganisms like Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Peptostreptococcus, and Bacteroides. Though the disease starts as an upper respiratory tract infection, it may spread and cause thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein. It may present itself through cranial nerve palsy or sepsis involving distant organs like the lungs or bones. It is also known as forgotten disease because of its rarity...

BACKGROUND: Fusobacterium necrophorum is a common agent of disease in humans, but the occurrence of primary infections outside the head and neck area is extremely rare. While infection with Fusobacterium necrophorum has a rather benign course above the thorax, the organism is capable of producing very severe disease when located in unusual sites, including various forms of septic thrombophlebitis. No infections of the leg have been documented before; thus, antibiotic coverage for Fusobacterium is currently not recommended in this area...

Stroke is a rare event during pregnancy (10/100,000) and can be ischemic (24%), hemorrhagic (74%) or both (2%). Pregnancy probably increases the risk even if it is discussed for arteriovenous malformation (AVM), aneurismal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and cavernomas. Between 2010 and 2012, 31 maternal deaths were associated with stroke. In 22 cases, stroke was the direct cause of death giving a maternal mortality ratio of 0,9/100,000 witch is not different from the former report (2007-2009). There were 2 cerebral thrombophlebitis, 2 ischemic strokes and 18 hemorrhagic strokes (4 SAH, 2 AVM)...

<p>Extravasation of medications can manifest as tenderness, pain, tissue necrosis, and thrombophlebitis and lead to infection and severe long-term complications. Risk factors for leakage of medications include mechanical and pharmacologic mechanisms such as cannulation technique, vasoconstriction, and cytotoxicity. Well-known vesicants like anthracyclines, vinca alkaloids, and vasopressors are usually administered with proper caution. Often overlooked are many antimicrobial agents, which typically act via differences in osmolality and pH...

Lemierre's syndrome is a rare complication of acute pharyngitis characterised by septicaemia with infective thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein, most commonly due to Fusobacterium necrophorum. It characteristically affects healthy young adults causing persistent pyrexia and systemic sepsis presenting several days after an initial pharyngitis. Septic emboli seed via the bloodstream to distant sites including the lung, joints, skin, liver, spleen and brain. Prolonged antimicrobial therapy is required and admission to intensive care common...

BACKGROUND: The placement of a central venous catheter for the administration of vasopressors is still recommended and required by many institutions because of concern about complications associated with peripheral administration of vasopressors. OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to determine the incidence of complications from the administration of vasopressors through peripheral venous catheters (PVC) in patients with circulatory shock, and to identify the factors associated with these complications...

Ludwig's angina is a diffuse cellulitis in the submandibular, sublingual, and submental spaces, characterized by its propensity to spread rapidly to the surrounding tissues. Early recognition and treatment for Ludwig's angina are of paramount importance due to the myriad of complications that can occur in association with Ludwig's angina. Known complications of Ludwig's angina include carotid arterial rupture or sheath abscess, thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein, mediastinitis, empyema, pericardial effusion, osteomyelitis of the mandible, subphrenic abscess, aspiration pneumonia, and pleural effusion...

Infectious suppurative thrombophlebitis of the portal venous system, referred to as pylephlebitis, is a rare complication of intra-abdominal inflammatory processes. Advances in diagnostics and antibiotics have improved survival, but mortality remains remarkably high even in the most recent literature. The majority of patients have concomitant bacteraemia on presentation most commonly with typical gastrointestinal (GI) organisms. On rare occasion, patients have culture positive Fusobacterium, which has recently been associated with occult GI and genitourinary malignancies...

Lemierre's syndrome also termed post-anginal septicemia, is a disease characterized by internal jugular septic thrombophlebitis leading to Fusobacterium septicemia with multiple metastatic foci following an oropharyngeal infection. Diagnosis and management is challenging and can result in fatal consequences due to potential multisystem involvement and multiple complications. We describe here a case of Lemierre's syndrome with multifocal pneumonia, acute renal failure and protracted course of illness over forty days with successful recovery...

A 46-year-old man visited the emergency department of our hospital with a 3-day history of anal pain, hemorrhaging, and a slight fever. He had previously been diagnosed with protein C deficiency and was prescribed dabigatran, a direct oral anticoagulant. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography showed severe rectal wall thickening with partial defect of enhancement. In addition, sigmoidoscopy revealed a dusky purplish swollen anorectal mucosa just above the dentate line. He was diagnosed with acute anorectal thrombophlebitis, and anticoagulant therapy with heparin was initiated...
