A 23-year-old woman presented with a 6-week history of progressive pain and swelling in the left side of her neck. She had been treated with an empirical 10-day course of antibiotics, without benefit. She was otherwise healthy and had no history of preceding upper respiratory tract infection or trauma. She denied upper aerodigestive tract symptoms such as hoarseness and difficulty or pain on swallowing. She also denied constitutional symptoms such as night sweats, fever, loss of weight, and decreased appetite as well as tobacco and alcohol use.
