Abstract

OBJECTIVE. Our purpose was to describe the CT findings in patients with Bezold's abscesses. CONCLUSION. Bezold's abscesses are rare complications of mastoiditis. In our series most were seen in adults and were associated with a history of cholesteatoma and mastoidectomy. CT of the neck and temporal bone can help the surgeon determine appropriate treatment.
