Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Subcutaneous air of the face and neck can be seen after trauma to the lungs, airway, and esophagus. We present a case of a 29-year-old with recurrent subcutaneous air of the face and neck with minimal pneumomediastinum. In this report, we discuss the workup of this patient and review the literature regarding self-inflicted causes.
