Carotid space
Explanation:
Carotid space
1. Anatomy
space extending from the base of the skull to the aortic arch, completely encircled by a fascial sheath composed of the three layers of the deep cervical fascia (see cervical fascias). The carotid space contains a number of important neurovascular structures, such as the carotid artery and internal jugular vein and the vagal nerve. In the suprahyoid neck, the carotid space is considered by some authors to belong to the retrostyloid part of the parapharyngeal space.

2. Pathology

The most frequent pathology concerns the lymph nodes present in this space (see lymph nodes of the neck organization and lymphadenopathy head and neck).

The carotid space may be invaded by a pharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma head and neck, which may spread further craniocaudally along the neurovascular structures.
