    Aim: The aim of this survey is to assess the knowledge and awareness of undergraduates about Ludwig’s angina. Background: Ludwig’s angina has long been a fearful infective condition. The infection itself can be fatal and can cause damage to the body. Recently, the occurrence of this infection has regressed drastically to the point of it being zero to none. Due to that reason, medical professionals are only theoretically equipped with the management and knowledge about Ludwig’s angina. Ergo, this study is mainly done to assess the knowledge and awareness of undergraduates about Ludwig’s angina. Materials and Methods: A questionnaire of 10 questions was drafted and put up on a surveying website called SurveyMonkey. The link to the questionnaire was then distributed to as many as 100 undergraduate students. The results were then obtained through the website and were then tabulated accordingly. Results: The results concluded that the undergraduate students did, in fact, have concrete knowledge and understanding about Ludwig’s angina. Conclusion: It can be concluded that majority of the undergraduates are aware of the medical aspect of Ludwig’s angina and can assess the infection clinically as well as theoretically.
