What is Lemierre's Syndrome....?
It is not your average infectious disease.
This disease is not contagious. It attacks the body faster than cancer. Doctors say it is rare but that is just not true anymore. In the past 5 years the number of cases has jumped from 120 in 100 years to 1,000 cases & 100 deaths a year. The symptoms are very similar to the flu and strep throat. This disease attacks a different organ in every case.
