Marked swelling of the retropharyngeal soft tissues resulting in upper airway narrowing. Findings are concerning for retropharyngeal edema and/or abscess. Additional note is made of mild narrowing of the subglottic airway. Recommend contrast-enhanced neck CT for further evaluation.
Epiglottis is not well evaluated on this study but does not appear enlarged. This can also be further evaluated on CT.
