Hi Miz and Mike,
I recently had a young man present to UC with a history quite similar to your case, who is currently admitted for Lemierre's Syndrome. Thank you for posting this case! Quite fascinating, rare and a fortunate urgent referral to ED for further workup.
Let me know if you're interested in learning more about this case!
