Relapsing polychondritis (RP) predominantly involves cartilaginous structures, but systemic vasculitis is also associated with RP. A 44-year-old man with RP visited the emergency department for incidentally detected free air in a chest X-ray. He was diagnosed with pneumotosis intestinalis (PI). PI is rare disease in which gas forms between the bowel walls. He was successfully treated with bowel rest and empirical antibiotics. This paper reports a case of PI in a RP patient.
