    Lemierre syndrome is a rare complication of oropharyngeal infection, especially acute pharyngotonsillitis, associated with septicemia and thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein (IJV). We present the case of a 52-year-old patient who underwent liver transplantation and returned with symptoms of pain, redness and left cervical bulging 1 month after surgery. After investigation, the diagnosis of septic thrombophlebitis of the IJV was made. The patient responded well to treatment with antibiotic therapy and full anticoagulation. To the best of our knowledge, the present report is the first report of Lemierre syndrome in a post-liver transplant patient. Copyright © 2022 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
