  • Pharyngitis

    We report a case in which the patient presented with pharyngitis resulting in an unusual fatal complication of pharyngeal and cerebral abscess.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Most children with pharyngitis have benign, self-limited disease with infrequent complications such as peritonsillar abscess, mastoiditis, or lymphadenitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A neck CT-scan showed a large parapharyngeal abscess.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
