Extensive subcutaneous emphysema due to colonic perforation following colonoscopy.
J Coll Physicians Surg Pak. 2009 Jun; 19(6):383-5.JC

Abstract

During colonoscopy, subcutaneous emphysema may occur as a result of colonic perforation into retroperitoneal area. In this report, a 54-year-old woman with sigmoid colon perforation following colonoscopy is described. Subcutaneous emphysema was the first manifestation of the perforation in this case. Initially, the patient received supportive, non-surgical treatment, but due to development of acute abdominal signs and symptoms in later stages, the patient underwent surgical treatment.
