Spontaneous hemopneumothorax; report of a case



Spontaneous hemopneumothorax; report of a case



Ann Internal Med 16(2): 349-356



Spontaneous hemopneumothorax is a rare condition. It represents a spontaneous pneumothorax in which some unusual condition is present to give rise to bleeding into the pleural cavity. There were about 47 cases reported. One patient presented a classical example of the condition. A total of over 1400 ccms. of blood was removed from his right pleural cavity. Serial X-ray films of the chest and sedimentation rate detns. taken concomitantly revealed a definite correlation between the sedimentation rate and the amt. of blood remaining in the pleural cavity. The final X-ray film showed complete recovery.
