Lemierre’s Syndrome in an Adult: A Case Review

Lemierre’s syndrome (postanginal septicaemia/human necrobacillosis) was first defined and described in 1936 by Lemierre, a French Physician and Professor in Microbiology, although the first case report of human necrobacillosis was published in 1900 by Courmont and Cade. Lemierre’s syndrome has come to be known as the “forgotten” disease, as very few cases have been reported since the introduction and widespread use of antibiotics.
