Alar fascia
Section of the neck at about the level of the sixth cervical vertebra. Showing the arrangement of the fascia coli.

The alar fascia is layer of fascia, sometimes described as part of the prevertebral fascia,[1] and sometimes as in front of it.

Anteriorly, it reaches the skull, and caudally, it reaches the second thoracic vertebra.[2]

It is the posterior border of the retropharyngeal space.[3]
