Abstract

Ludwig’s Angina is a rapid progressive cellulitis of the submandibular spaces, with potential for significant upper airway obstruction. Most reported cases follow an odontogenic infection. We present a case of 22-year-old female patient in her 2 weeks post partum period developing a life threatening infection. Immediate intubation, surgical decompression and antibiotic therapy successfully resolved the episode.
