The neck is a narrow anatomical region with a vast number of vital structures. Depending on the injury mechanism of the trauma, it can be classified as blunt or penetrating. Zone II is the largest and central part of the neck, which affected more than two other zones in neck trauma due to more exposure. In the management of neck trauma, two aspects must be considered: the injury mechanism and the region that is affected. Penetrating neck trauma is the injury that crosses the cutaneous muscle of the neck. The patients who did not have clear signs of visceral or vascular damage (soft signs) use complementary diagnostic methods. Those who present clinical evidence of a vital organ injury (hard signs) should undergo surgery.
