  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 Up to date from 1975 six cases of deep neck infection were treated. Three patients had retropharyngeal infection. (Two cases had abscess and one case had inflammation.) Other three patients had submandibular abscess, parapharyngeal abscess and deep neck phlegmon.

 Reviewing the literature regarding deep neck infection in Japan from 1975, it was shown that deep neck infections had a tendency to increase. Bacteriologically, Streptococcus and Staphylococcus were commonly associated with deep neck infection, but infection with anaerobic bacteria and enteric gram negative microorganism were increased. About half of cases of deep neck phlegmon had diabetes mellitus as a complication.
