Abstract

Deep neck space infection can lead to a life threatening situation if not treated on time. The best prognosis can be achieved when the treatment is early, limiting the complexity of the situation and using minimally invasive techniques for speedy recovery. In this article we emphasize on a novel technique of percutaneous CT guided needle aspiration in the management of a life threatening deep neck space infection of dental origin with report of a case.
