The prevertebral space is a space in the neck.

On one side it is bounded by the prevertebral fascia. [1]

On the other side, some sources define it as bounded by the vertebral bodies, [2] and others define it as bounded by the longus colli. [1]

It includes the prevertebral muscles (longus colli and longus capitis), vertebral artery, vertebral vein, scalene muscles, phrenic nerve and part of the brachial plexus.[3]
