We present a case of a 10-year-old girl with sore throat, right neck pain and fever. Lateral neck X-ray showed an increase of soft tissue swelling over the retropharyngeal space. Right parapharyngeal abscess was diagnosed with the help of a neck CT scan. She was successful managed with antibiotics and supportive treatment. Deep neck infection such as parapharyngeal abscess should be included in differential diagnosis for any patient who presented with sore throat, neck pain and fever.
