Abstract:
We report a case of mediastinitis complicating an otolangological infection in a 38-year-old female. Hospitalized as severe pneumonia the patient had inadequate cardiac, consciousness lesions and no answer on standard antibacterial treatment. Computer tomography was useful to diagnose the mediastenitis. Despite drainage of the thorax and the administration of systemic antibiotics, her localized neck abscess after tonsillitis extended to involve the pericardial and pleural cavities. Drainage procedures and thoracotomies were required to treat the empyema and purulent pericarditis but were unsuccessfully.
