Abstract

Acute calcific longus colli tendinitis is a benign and self-limiting inflammatory disease that rarely requires aggressive intervention. However, clinicians may be unfamiliar with this condition, and it can easily be misdiagnosed for a deep neck abscess or tumor resulting in unnecessary and invasive procedures. This article describes a patient who presented to the ED with progressive odynophagia and neck pain.
