Pneumomediastinum and subcutaneous emphysema are uncommon in pediatric parctice except in association with Respiratory distress and active resuscitation in the neonatal period and as a complication of asthma in later childhood. This 2 year old male was admitted with chief complaints of dyspnea and hoarseness for 4 days. After comfirming the diagnosis by physical examination arid radiography, symptomatic therapy alone was quite successful. We presented a case of pneumomediastinum and subcutaneous emphysema as complication of measle and reviewed the literatures.
