Balakrishnan, Dhayal and Mohamad Saini, Suraini and Mohd Nor, Hazman and Jamil, Hariati and Mahmud, Rozi and Abdul Rahim, Ezamin (2018) An uncommon vascular cause of spontaneous hydropneumothorax. Pertanika Journal of Science & Technology, 26 (2). pp. 893-898. ISSN 0128-7680; ESSN: 2231-8526


This paper highlights a potentially life threatening and unsuspected case of multiple small pseudoaneurysms from the thyrocervical and costocervical branch of the left subclavian artery that was spontaneously ruptured. The cause was not suspected prior to thoracic CT angiography (CTA) because the initial pre-emptive diagnosis was only trivial spontaneous hydropneumothorax which became serious after a chest tube was inserted.
