GALLI, Nicolás et al. Calcific tendinitis of the longus colli muscle. A case Report. Anfamed [online]. 2020, vol.7, n.2, e403.  Epub 01-Dic-2020. ISSN 2301-1254.  http://dx.doi.org/10.25184/anfamed2020v7n2a7.

Calcific tendinitis of the long neck muscle is an underdiagnosed, low frequency, self-limited pathology. It is clinically presented as one of the causes of odynophagia in the medical consultation.

It occurs due to the deposit of hydroxyapatite crystals in the retropharyngeal space, triggering a local inflammatory response.

On This patholgy, the main differential diagnosis is retropharyngeal abscess, since it can present clinically with odynophagia, dysphagia, decreased mobility of the neck, and neck pain. In our work, a clinical case of this pathology is analyzed, in a 45-year-old man; performing an analysis of the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of this entity.

Palabras clave : Cervical tendinitis; calcific tendinitis; Odynophagia; Neck pain.
