Infection In Submandibularbereich

(Ludwig’s angina, Mundbodenphlegmone)

With an infection in Submandibularbereich floor of the mouth is acutely inflamed. Symptoms include pain, dysphagia, and a potentially fatal airway obstruction. The diagnosis is made clinically in general. The treatment consists of the airway, surgical drainage and i.v. Antibiotic therapy.

Infections in Submandibularbereich spreading rapidly on both sides and lead to inflammation and hardening of the connective tissue suprahyoid, floor of the mouth and sublingual and submaxillärer areas, but not to abscess formation. Although it is not a true abscess, has a Mundbodenphlegmone clinical resemblance to an abscess and will be treated the same.

The Ludwig’s angina or Mundbodenphlegmone usually develops from an odontogenic infection (preferably in the range of the second and third molars) or extended peritonsillitis. Favoring affect factors such as poor dental hygiene, dental extractions, and trauma (eg. As mandibular fractures, lacerations floor of the mouth). Symptoms and signs Early symptoms are tooth pain associated with an extremely pressure-sensitive hardening under the chin or tongue. This can quickly board hard spot developing on the floor of the mouth with strong induration of suprahyoid connective tissue. It can also result in increased salivation, trismus, dysphagia, stridor due to a Larynxödems and high curvature of the tongue against the palate. Also, fever, chills and tachycardia are often present. Within hours, and more often than other throat infections, an airway obstruction can occur. Ludwig’s angina figure provided by Clarence T.
