Unusual sites of Diphtheritic Membrane and Cervical Oedema

Mustafa Abdalla M Salih, Gaafar I Suliman, Hassan S Hassan.

Abstract
Abstract The clinical picture in four children (5-8 years of age) who showed a diphtheritic membrane in an unusual site during an outbreak of diphtheria in Khartoum - is reported and discussed in the light of similar reports in the literature. Three patients showed the rarely reported finding of a labial diphtheritic membrane unassociated with involvement of either the nose or throat. In two patients, the membrane covered the floor of the mouth and in a third patient also the inferior surface of the tongue. The fourth child had a membrane on the floor of the mouth as well as in the tonsillopharyngeal region. This extended membrane was accompanied by severe cervical oedema giving the classical 'bull-neck' appearance.

Key words: Diphtheda, Membranes, Mouth mucosa, Tongue, Oedema, Neck
