Author information

Abstract

Subcutaneous emphysema occurs when air is introduced into the tissues. This can happen as a complication during, or immediately after surgery. It has rarely been described after tonsillectomy. Definitive treatment will depend on the cause. We report two cases of subcutaneous emphysema following tonsillectomy.
