Subcutaneous emphysema in the extremities is usually secondary to serious infections with gas- forming bacteria. In addition, high-pressure gas or liquid injection has been well documented to result in soft tissue gas in the literature.

In the current study, we present a case resulting from highpressure liquid patrol gas injection. In a number of clinics which he referred , he had received a variety of treatment proposals including amputation. However, complete recovery was achieved with simple careful observation.
