A Case of Descending Necrotizing MediastinitisPenetrating to the Esophagus.

Inaba Y, Tokano H, Ohtsu A, Kitamura K - J Rural Med (2010)

Bottom Line: Here, we present the case of a 78-year-old man with a deep neck infection that caused descending necrotizing mediastinitis that extended from the pharynx to the stomach and was accompanied by two large esophageal fistulas and multiple gastric ulcers.We believe that the series of lesions were the signs of a hidden carcinoma.

Mentions: Coronal and sagital computed tomography images of the neck on day 3. An abscess wasobserved on the right parapharingeal space and left hypopharynx. It is supposed thatthe abscess descended across from right to left at the laryngeal level (Fig. 1a). The pharyngeal abscess descended tothe breastbone level via the left side of the esophagus. The longer axis extended toover 10 centimeters (Fig. 2b).
