Spontaneous pneumomediastinumis defined as the presence of free air in the mediastinum without any apparent concomitant factors or disease. It is most often affecting young males which is usually benign and self-limiting.The pathophysiology of this disease is probably based on a pressure gradient between the alveolus and the lung interstitium. The most important examination to make a diagnosis of spontaneous pneumomediastinum is radiography. Generally, no special interventions are indicated for the treatment.We report a case of 26-year-old manwith a benign spontaneous pneumomediastinum complicating an inaugural diabetic ketoacidosis.
