    Notes 
    • (Research):1909 Book 4 page 27
    • (Medical):Ludwig's angina is a type of severe cellulitis involving the floor of the mouth in which there is swelling and difficulty swallowing saliva, which may run from the person's mouth. As the condition worsens, the airway may be compromised with hardening of the spaces on both sides of the tongue. This condition has a rapid onset over hours.

      The majority of cases follow a dental infection. Other causes include a parapharyngeal abscess, mandibular fracture, cut or piercing inside the mouth, or submandibular salivary stones. It is a spreading infection of connective tissue through tissue spaces, normally with virulent and invasive organisms. It specifically involves the submandibular, submental, and sublingual spaces.

      Prevention is by appropriate dental care including management of dental infections. Initial treatment is generally with broad-spectrum antibiotics and corticosteroids. In more advanced cases endotracheal intubation or tracheostomy may be required.

      With the advent of antibiotics in 1940s, improved oral and dental hygiene, and more aggressive surgical approach, the rates and risk of death among those infected has significantly reduced. [6]

    USA-MA-SUF-BOSTON Sacred Heart Church North End
    USA-MA-SUF-BOSTON Sacred Heart Church North End
    It is highly likely that this was where Nicola and Rosa Verrocchi worshipped when the first came to America and probably where Rosa's funeral Mass was held. Sacred Heart has been serving the Italian community of the North End since 1884. It was run by the Scalabrini missionaries who came to America to minister to Italian immigrants. The Nave of the upper church is an impressive space with marble columns supporting its magnificent frescoed ceiling. The smaller devotional chapel downstairs is a splendid testimony to the piety and devotion which the early immigrants brought from Italy. The chapel is surrounded by shrines to St. Anthony, St. Lucy, Our Lady of the Rosary, St. Therese, St. Rita, St. Jude, Poor Souls, St. Rosalie and the Pieta.
