In children, pharyngeal perforation is a very uncommon injury. Most of the time, it is caused by secondary instrumentation. Laceration of the pharyngeal wall poses a life-threatening risk if not detected and treated promptly. A high level of suspicion is required in such cases, so hospitalization is needed for observation until an accurate diagnosis can be made. Here, we described a case of pharyngeal perforation in a 5-year-old boy who had oral blunt trauma and developed pneumomediastinum, which we managed conservatively.
