 A 47-year-old male and a 62-year-old female visited our hospital with the chief complaint of posterior neck pain. In each case, the increased width of the retropharyngeal space without ringed enhancement of the surrounding area and calcification of soft tissue anterior to the C1 and C2 vertebral bodies were identified on CT, and the high intensity areas of the retropharyngeal space on T2-weighted images in MRI. The symptoms resolved about one week after conservative treatment with anti-inflammatory and analgesic medications. The clinical courses of both cases were uneventful until now.
