Abstract

Spontaneous pneumomediastinum is a benign situation which occurs rarely and frequently effects young adult men. Cases are rarely with symptoms and they are detected by chance. Frequently the symptoms degrade without need to the treatment. Diagnosis can be made by physical examination and chest roentgenograms, rarely further analysis are required. We aim at presenting two cases with spontaneous pneumomediastinum that we have diagnosed with computerized tomography.
