Causes of pneumomediastinum range from benign to life-threatening. The cause is usually apparent from the history and clinical context.

The abuse of crack cocaine has become epidemic among adolescents in many areas. The possibility of drug abuse in any adolescent who arrives with chest or pulmonary complaints should be considered (Luque MA et al 87).

Abnormal chest radiographs are quite common in cocaine users admitted with respiratory complaints, ranging from 12-55%(McCarroll KA et al 91). Both pneumomediastinum and pneumothorax are relatively common after illicit cocaine use, and the incidence is higher for those who smoke crack cocaine, a relatively pure, extremely addictive, intensely euphoric alkaloid form. Of those with pneumomediastinum, one series reported 73% with detectable subcutaneous emphysema and 50% with Hamman's sign, an unusual systolic crunch heard over the cardiac apex and the left sternal border (Seaman ME 1990).

The mechanism of air leaks is felt to be related to exertional inhalation with Valsalva maneuvers. Drug users do this to accomplish the highest delivery of drug to the bloodstream. Irritants in the inhalant and the higher temperatures of the inhalant may induce reflex coughing, resulting in even greater intrathoracic pressure surges. In most cases, air is allowed into the mediastinum by spontaneous rupture of distended alveoli into the pulmonary vascular sheath (Brody SL et al 1988).

The peculiar crackling, bubbling, or churning sounds usually heard during systole (Hamman's sign) are considered by some to be pathognomonic for mediastinal emphysema, and were first described in 1945 by Hamman (Hamman L 1945), who also attributed interstitial emphysema to trauma, increased intrapulmonary pressure (Valsalva maneuvers and cough), or spontaneous rupture of alveoli. Hamman's sign is often noted to be transient, as in this case. Hamman's sign has also been well described with isolated pneumothoraces and may represent free pleural air cyclically channeled through a lung fissure (Baumann MH et al 1992).

Retrospective reviews of young children with tracheobronchial foreign body aspiration have revealed a relatively high frequency of pneumomediastinum on initial chest radiographs. The radiographic finding of pneumomediastinum should lead to the consideration of foreign body aspiration in any child in a high risk age group (Burton EM et al 1989; Ramadan HH et al 1992).

Pneumomediastinum is seen not uncommonly as a relatively late complication of cystic fibrosis (Grum CM 1992), and if noted in any steroid-dependent child with unexplained fevers, esophageal rupture should be considered (Klygis LM et al 1993). Rarely, pneumomediastinum may signal tracheobronchial disruption in any patient with blunt thoracic trauma (Baumgartner F et al 1990).

Pneumomediastinum and/or pneumothorax should be considered as an etiology for respiratory complaints or chest pain in any young person whose daily activities may include an unusual frequency of Valsalva maneuvers or increased intrathoracic pressure. Examples include a young trombonist (Ito S et al 1989) and a Chinese martial arts expert (Yoneyama H et al 1990).

Complete spontaneous recovery within days is expected for drug- and Valsalva-related pneumomediastinum.
