We present 2 cases of retropharyngeal abscess in adults as complication of acute tonsillitis and cervical pyogenic osteomyelitis, respectively. These cases confirm that retropharyngeal abscess has a significant morbi-mortality despite of new antibiotic drugs introduced. A review of the present characteristics of the complaint is treated in this paper.
