Complicated Traumatic Pneumothorax Requiring VATS With Lobectomy and Pleurodesis Arising Following SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Recovery.

Publication date: Nov 01, 2023

A case is presented in which COVID-19 pneumonia led a young male patient to develop a pneumothorax requiring lobectomy and pleurodesis after the resolution of COVID-19 pneumonia. The literature review showed a few similar cases with clear evidence suggesting that prior COVID-19 infection may be considered a risk factor for pneumothorax. It is crucial for clinicians to take such risk factors into consideration for better clinical outcomes.
