Ludwig angina is a severe, life-threatening soft-tissue infection of the submandibular space � the area between the lower jaw and the neck. The infection can cause swelling and obstruction of the airway, which can lead to suffocation. Ludwig angina is treated with antibiotics and, if necessary, surgery. Early diagnosis and treatment are essential for preventing serious complications or death.
