Abstract

Descending necrotizing mediastinitis is a rare and often lethal complication of odontogenic infections despite modern medical advances. We report a case of Ludwig angina leading to descending necrotizing mediastinitis complicated by jugular septic thrombophlebitis and suppurative pericarditis successfully treated with newer, minimally invasive mediastinal interventions.
