Diagnosis: Retropharyngeal AbscessLateral airway film (top left) shows prominent upper cervical prevertebral soft tissue (double arrow). Contrast enhanced CT of the neck (top right and bottom row) demonstrates in the posterior oropharynx a large heterogeneous but predominantly low attenuation lesion with peripheral enhancement (arrows), compatible with a retropharyngeal abscess. Notice also moderate narrowing of the airways (asterisk).
