Road traffic accident is not uncommon in India. Though the chest injury is less common after road traffic accident it may present atypically. Delay in diagnosis of a life threatening chest injury may lead to death. We are reporting a case of extensive subcutaneous emphysema after road traffic accident. The subcutaneous emphysema was due to tension pneumothorax, which was managed in time to save the patient.
