We describe two patients who developed spontaneous pneumomediastinum without pneumothorax against a background of bleomycin-induced pulmonary interstitial disease whilst on treatment for metastatic germ cell tumours of the testis. Pneumomediastinum is a rare but recognized complication of bleomycin-induced lung toxicity, which has previously only been described in association with pneumothorax.
