Abstract

Preoperative massive subcutaneous emphysema before intubation is extremely rare. However, this complication may be potentially lethal, depend on the condition of air spreading. Subcutaneous emphysema which occurs intra- or postoperative period is sometimes iatrogenic because the air is introduced into the tissue space through the hole injured by the operation. But the emphysema in this case occurred preoperatively by the pressure of the bag valve mask, because the patient had an intra-oral wound, which reaches the submental space. In this report, we describe an extremely rare case of preoperative massive emphysema of the patient with the mandibular fracture.
