The pharynx and larynx represent very sophisticated regions and may be involved in a diverse range of pathologic conditions. Evaluation of the head and neck has developed significantly with the establishment of CT and MRI as they provide true insights into the endoscopically blind areas as well as depth of tumor infiltration, its submucosal growth and contralateral involvement, cartilage invasion, bone marrow invasion, and nonpalpable adenopathy. Inflammations in the head and neck region are only exceptionally imaged with CT or MRI; indications are the diagnosis of retrotonsillar and parapharyngeal abscesses and ensuing complications. The different imaging modalities of malignant pharyngeal and laryngeal tumors and their differential diagnosis are presented in this paper.
