    Abstract

    Infections of the deep structures of the head and neck are polymicrobial, rapidly progressive, and frequently life-threatening. The bacteriology, clinical presentation, and the need for multidisciplinary management of these infections are stressed. In addition, this article discusses selected head and neck infections of immunocompromised hosts and postexposure prophylaxis for serious infections of the pharynx.
