Spontaneous bilateral pneumothorax in drug addicts

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Two cases of bilateral pneumothorax are reported in drug addicts; only one such case has been previously reported. They presented ostensibly as spontaneous pneumothoraces; however, meticulous history and physical examination proved them to be traumatic. Causes of spontaneous pneumothoraces are presented. Self-injection must be considered in the clinical differential diagnosis of spontaneous pneumothorax.
