Multifocal left neck infection with loculated fluid collections extending from the peritonsillar and retropharyngeal spaces to the thyroid cartilage. Thrombosis left internal jugular vein. Multiple necrotic/cavitary pulmonary nodules likely represent septic emboli.
Thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein due to adjacent oropharyngeal infection with bacterial seeding of distant structures, in this case, the lung, is characteristic of Lemierre syndrome.
