In children and infants the retro-pharyngeai space is not as long as in the adult, giving rise to symptoms of pressure on the larynx sooner than in adults under similar conditions. The retro-pharyngeal space is the seat of several lymph-nodes. If all of these lymph-nodes are affected, there will be swelling in the mouth, and sometimes also beneath the angle of the jaw in front of the sterno-mastoid muscle, or behind its posterior border. Retro-pharyngeal abscesses may be divided into: (1) Acute retro-pharyngeal abscess, which points wholly internally; (2) abscess pointing only externally; (3) abscess forming chiefly as an external tumor; (4) chronic tubercular retro-pharyngeal abscess; and (5) the burrowing septic abscess, such as is seen more
