SAPUNAR Z, Jorge; CABELLO V, Alvaro  e  GODOY R, Emilio. Retropharyngeal phlegmon caused by a group B Streptococcus in a diabetic patient: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2008, vol.136, n.3, pp.351-355. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872008000300011.

We report a 47 year-old diabetic male, admitted due to metabolic decompensation, malaise, purulent pharyngeal discharge and a mass in the posterior cervical region. Blood glucose was 270 mg/dl, a nasopharyngoscopy showed a pharyngeal phlegmon and CT scan confirmed the presence of a phlegmon in the retropharyngeal region. He was treated with sodium penicillin, cloxacillin and ceftriazone and the phlegmon was drained surgically. The culture of the purulent discharge gave growth to a Group B Streptococcus. The evolution was favorable and the patient completed seven days with intravenous antimicrobials and additional seven days with oral ampicillin/sulbactam
