Abstract:We present a case of fatal cervical osteomyelitis following an elective tonsillectomy in a previously fit young man. Following induction of general anaesthesia, and prior to surgery, the patient received bilateral glossopharyngeal nerve blocks with 0.5% bupivacaine and adrenaline 1:200,000. The initial recovery was uneventful but persistent throat and neck pain developed at home which was diagnosed as a throat infection and possible hyperextension injury of the neck. It is impossible to say how much the dissection of chronically infected tonsils or the infiltration of local anaesthetic into or near a potentially infected area contributed to the development of cervical osteomyelitis. The absence of any other symptoms and signs, a normal blood count and cervical spine X-ray, and the rarity of cervical osteomyelitis, all contributed to a delay in diagnosis.
