Head and Neck

  • Sandra ButlerEmail author


This chapter is amply illustrated with both clinical and radiological imaging of a selection of conditions. Many congenital conditions are seen in the head and neck of infants and children. Also very common in all children are inflammatory conditions of the head and neck; only severe clinical conditions are described here. Also described in great detail are the wide range of head injuries from trauma, as well as tumours of the head and neck. Finally, a selection of acquired conditions is depicted.
