Abstract

A 25-year-old man with a history of Marfan syndrome, asthma and smoking presented with worsening dyspnoea and right-sided chest pain worsened with deep breathing after a fall 2 days prior. Diagnostic imaging revealed a spontaneous right-sided pneumothorax due to ruptured subpleural bullae in the apex of the right lung. Smaller subpleural bullae were also noted in the apex of the left lung. A chest tube was placed to reduce the right pneumothorax successfully.
