ABSTRACT
In this case report, by drawing attention to the diagnosis of spontaneous pneumomediastinum (SPM), a review of literature was aimed. A 25-year-old male patient was admitted to the emergency service with the complaint of shortness of breath which continued for 20 days. Vital signs were normal in his physical examination but bilateral bronchospasm was found in his lung examination. Image of pneumomediastinum in chest radiography was suspicious. Pneumomediastinum and subcutaneous emphysema were detected at thorax tomography. SPM should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients who are admitted with the complaint of dyspnea.
