Abstract

Four cases of cervical osteomyelitis complicating transpharyngeal gunshot wounds to the neck are discussed. Thorough debridement of bone and soft tissue, adequate drainage, broad-spectrum antibiotics, and rigid immobilization of the cervical spine are essential for the successful treatment of this complication. Inadequate of delayed treatment may result in prolonged hospitalization, the need for multiple surgical procedures, and possible neurologic deficits.
