Key Words Lemierre's syndrome; Klebsiella pneumoniae; Diabetes Mellitus; Pulmonary embolism; Septic pneumonia; Case report
Core Tip Lemierre’s syndrome is mostly caused by Fusobacterium. However, we present a rare case of Lemierre’s syndrome caused by Klebsiella pneumoniae in a patient with poor glycemic control. Uncommon in Lemierre’s syndrome, renal vein thrombosis and acute kidney injury occurred, continuous renal replacement therapy was performed, and mechanical ventilation was performed for serious pulmonary complications. The incidence of Lemierre's syndrome decreased after antibiotics were developed. However, when Lemierre’s syndrome occurs, the mortality rate from its complications is high, so we want to emphasize that patients with systemic symptoms accompanied by fever and sore throat should be suspicious of Lemierre's syndrome.
