Abstract : We present two cases of Pott's lower cervical spine with retro-pharyngeal abscess presenting at an unusually young age. These children presented with a life threatening respiratory distress; one of them had neurological deficit in the form of paraparesis. External drainage of abscess without anterior cervical fusion was adequate as a surgical measure for their prompt recovery while these cases were on conventional anti-tubercular therapy.
