Abstract Spontaneous cervical emphysema and pneumomediastinum, occurring in the absence of previous disorders or provocating factors, is very rare. The predominant symptoms are retroesternal pain, dyspnea, dysphagia and neck pain. The diagnosis is established radiologically. The evolution is generally good and conservative therapy leads to recovery in most patients. We present an unusual case of pneumomediastinum, cervical and retropharyngeal emphysema that spread to cavum; the suspected symptom was voice alteration as reported by the parents.
