Postanginal sepsis is a septicemia resulting from an antecedent pharyngitis that causes an internal jugular vein thrombophlebitis. Because of the severity of the disease and the difficulty in its diagnosis, familiarity with all aspects of the disease is essential. We present three cases and review the literature on postanginal sepsis. The clinical course of the disease is described and its evaluation and treatment are outlined.
