Spontaneous pneumomediastinum is a benign condition, caused by alveolar rupture and associated with many clinical conditions. There are numerous reports of spontaneous pneumomediastinum associated with various origins such as bronchial asthma, labor and a mechanically obstructed airway. A 20-year old woman visited our outpatient clinic because of a productive cough and dyspnea. A pneumomediastinum was seen on the chest radiograph and acid fast bacilli were observed on the sputum study. Endobronchial tuberculosis was diagnosed by bronchoscopy and improved with antituberculous treatment. Here, we report a case of spontaneous pneumomediastinum as a complication of endobronchial tuberculosis and review the medical literature.(Korean J Med 71:431-434, 2006) Key Words : Pneumomediastinum, Tuberculosis
