Abstract

Nowadays due to the use of antibiotics the occurrence of a general complication of tonsillitis is extremely rare. Lemierre in 1936 throroughly described one of these events. We introduce a case of postanginal septicaemia detected in a previous healthy young woman. We also undertake a review of Lemierre's syndrome cases published within the last seven years in the English and Spanish literature, giving special attention to diagnostical methods and therapeutical strategies.
