Abstract
La asociación de fibrosis pulmonar y neumomediastino es infrecuente. La tomografía computarizada es el método adecuado para la detección de un pequeño neumomediastino, difícil de detectar mediante la radiografía de tórax. Se presenta un caso de fibrosis pulmonar idiopática, con ataques frecuentes y severos de tos, que desarrolló un neumomediastino y un enfisema subcutáneo cervical, sin neumotórax, en probable relación con la rotura de bullas. La evolución fue favorable con tratamiento sintomático. The association between pulmonary fibrosis and pneumomediastinum is infrequent. Computed tomography is the suited method for the detection of small pneumomediastinum, ...
