Blast injuries causing pneumatic damage to the oesophagus are very rare. Patients usually present with respiratory distress, subcutaneous and mediastinal emphysema, and may also have pneumothorax. Ruptures need early repair to avoid serious morbidity and potential lethal complications. We report about a successfully treated 47-year-old patient, who has been admitted to our department with compressed air injury of the oesophagus.
