The aim of the study is to present a rare case of pneumomediastinum, pneumoretroperitoneum, and subcutaneous emphysema as signs of perforation of an occult sigmoid diverticulitis. We review patient’s clinical and laboratory findings, radiographic data, and surgical therapy. Furthermore, we offer possible explanations for these unusual complications based on analysis of this case and review of the literature.
