The correct answer is D. All of the above.

When the perimandibular spaces (submandibular, sublingual, and submental) are bilaterally involved in an infection, it is known as Ludwig’s angina. This infection is a rapidly spreading cellulitis that can obstruct the airway and commonly spreads posteriorly to the deep fascial spaces of the neck.
