Abstract

Retropharyngeal emphysema is a rare condition with various causes including traumatic and iatrogenic injuries, or it could occur spontaneously. Symptoms of mediastinitis and/or airway obstruction should be evaluated as indicators for surgical incision. Complications of mediastinitis are associated with poor prognosis; therefore, worsening of symptoms should be carefully monitored.
