Abstract

The objective is to describe a uncommon case of Ludwig,s angina, a fast growing necrotizing cellulitis of the mouth's floor that affects the submaxilla, submandible, and sublingual regions. A 21 years old female patient was admitted in the female ENT ward with the chief complaint of difficulty in swallowing and pain in throat since 3 days. CECT scan of neck suggested sublingual abscess with cellulitis. The patient underwent surgical procedure. Ludwig's angina, which had a relatively high fatality rate of over 50% in the pre-antibiotic era, now has a mortality rate of just about 8–10%. Early diagnosis and antibiotic treatment is preffered, if cannot be treated can go with surgical procedure.

Keywords: Ludwig,s angina, cellulitis, sublingual abscess, antibiotic treatment.
