Spontan pneumomediastinum som komplikation til jubelscene under EM-kvartfinale

Abstract

Spontaneous pneumomediastinum is a rare condition caused by a bronchial or alveolar rupture. The condition is often benign and self-limiting, but rapid diagnosis is essential, and potentially dangerous differential diagnoses must be eliminated. In this case report, we present a 16-year-old male who developed voice changes, a sore throat and swelling of the neck in relation to football cheering. X-ray and CT findings showed pneumomediastinum and supraclavicular subcutaneous emphysema. No treatment was necessary, and after one week there were no symptoms left.
