Subcutaneous emphysema and pneumomediastinum are commonly derived from trauma or injury of respiratory or gastrointestinal tracts, but occasionally the origin of air was not determined at evaluation. We report on a case of severe subcutaneous emphysema detected using simple X-ray films in the emergency department, which extended to almost all of the bodies, with a review of the literature.
Key words: Air, Origin, Pneumomediastinum
