    Deep neck space infection is a serious infection with rapid progression and development of life-threatening complications with variable presentations. Clinical presentation of this infections may vary according to primary site of infections; extent of inflammation and infection; presence of abscess and local effects and associated comorbidity. More over several deep neck space infections may not be evident on palpation posing challenges for clinical diagnosis. Early identification of extent and patterns with help of imaging modalities will help in choosing appropriate management and provide an important role in reducing morbidity and complications and preventing mortality. Therefore, the study is being performed to determine the role of imaging modalities in evaluating the patterns of deep neck space infections
