Development of pneumothorax during the course of COVID-19 is very rare, and may occur secondary to severe pulmonary involvement causing alveolar damage in the parenchyma, or is seen as a complication of respiratory support. Until now, quite a few cases have been reported. Herein, we shared a case of spontaneous pneumothorax with persistent air leakage without any parenchymal or pleural involvement.

Keywords: Pneumothorax, COVID-19, Thoracotomy, Air leakage

COVID-19 seyri sırasında pnömotoraks çok nadirdir, parankimde alveolar hasara neden olan ciddi pulmoner tutuluma ikincil olarak ortaya çıkabilir veya solunum desteğinin bir komplikasyonu olarak görülür. Şimdiye kadar çok az sayıda vaka bildirilmiştir. Burada herhangi bir parankimal veya plevral tutulum olmaksızın persistan hava kaçağı olan spontan pnömotoraks olgusunu paylaştık.

Anahtar Kelimeler: Pnömotoraks, COVID-19, Torakotomi, Hava kaçağı
