Acute calcific tendinitis of the longus colli muscle (CTLCM) is a rare reason of neck pain and symptoms can bear odynophagia, mild fever, and restricted cervical motion. Computed tomography is the most important radiologic examination for diagnosis, and magnetic resonance imaging or plain radiographs can also be used for diagnosis. We present two cases of acute CTLCM with specific imaging findings, prevertebral edema and calcium accumulation.
