abstract

  • Lingual abscess is a rare entity, as reflected by the paucity of reported cases in the literature. We recently treated a case of lingual abscess that presented as acute upper airway obstruction in an infant. To our knowledge, this is the first case of lingual abscess that has presented in this manner and it prompted us to review the diagnosis and treatment of this entity.
