We present a case of severe asthma exacerbation which was complicated by spontaneous bilateral pneumothoraces (SBPT), pneumomediastinum (PM) and subcutaneous emphysema; all developing subsequent to one another. Despite prompt treatment on recognition of these complications, our patient had poor outcome. Diagnosis needs CT chest as clinical exam and chest x ray is not high yield with subcutaneous emphysema.
