Pneumomediastinum refers to the presence of air in the mediastinum. It is commonly occurs secondary to a perforation of respiratory or gastrointestinal system organs. Primary spontaneous pneumomediastinum is a rare and benign condition that can result from a peripheral pulmonary alveolar rupture. We present here a case of spontaneous pneumomediastinum that occurred following to a generalized tonic-clonic epileptic seizure.
