This case involves a ten-year-old male patient, who originally presented to his primary care physician with generalized malaise and symptoms that would generally point towards an infectious etiology. The primary care physician took a limited history on the initial visit and did not examine the patient, reassuring the patient’s parents that his condition was most likely self-limiting and would resolve soon. The physician remained dismissive when the patient returned shortly after the initial visit complaining of the same symptoms. It was not until the patient’s third trip to the medical practice that the physician examined him. On examination, the treating physician found an enlarged axillary lymph node that he felt required further investigation. The patient was referred to a local children’s hospital. The treating physician ordered a work-up which included the sampling of the lymphatic gland. The lymph node biopsy confirmed infection. Soon after the minor surgical procedure the patient crashed and was taken to the ICU. He was diagnosed with Lemierre’s disease. The patient was resuscitated and remained in hospital for a long period of time before being discharged. Upon arriving at home after discharge, the patient broke out in a rash and was taken to the ER once again. The patient was eventually diagnosed with Stevens–Johnson syndrome and died during his last admission from complications due to the disease process.
