Angina de Ludwig: hinchazón mandibular y cuello + dolor de garganta


Wiler J. Emergency Medicine News: December 2009; 31 (12): 6,15,16
doi: 10.1097/01.EEM.0000365494.80041.47
"Ludwig's angina is a potentially life-threatening, rapidly progressive, gangrenous, and necrotizing cellulitis of the mouth floor (submandibular space), typically attributed to a primary dental infection, and it can lead to death within hours. The term comes from the Latin angere, meaning to strangle. Patients with the highest risk of life-threatening complications include those with immunocompromising conditions, such as diabetes mellitus and HIV and those with anterior visceral space extension or bilateral submandibular involvement."
