Abstract
Cervicofacial subcutaneous emphysema is a rare complication mainly resulting from dental procedures. The majority of cases are self-limiting and benign in clinical nature. However, although entry sites may be quite small and superficial, it can result in potential respiratory difficulties, such as pneumothorax and pneumomediastinum. We present the first case in which facial subcutaneous emphysema developed in a 6-year-old boy following use of a fish cake skewer while eating.
Key Words: Subcutaneous emphysema; Trauma
