Abstract

Traumatic thoracic injuries and related complications have a mortality of 15.5-25%. We present a case of a 30-year-old with blunt thoracic trauma, massive edema of the lung, and laceration of the middle lobe, associated with air around the pulmonary vein, evaluated with multidetector computed tomography. To the best of our knowledge, air around the pulmonary vein has not been previously described in the literature.
