Authors: Yamaya T, Baba T, Hagiwara E, Ikeda S, Niwa T, Kitayama T, Murohashi K, Higa K, Sato Y, Ogura T Abstract Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has been recognized as a worldwide pandemic. However, the clinical course of COVID-19 remains poorly characterized. Although some cases of pneumothorax have been reported, they all had pulmonary complications or were managed with mechanical ventilation. We herein report a case of pneumothorax that developed even though the patient had no pulmonary underlying diseases and had never been managed with mechanical ventilation. In the present case, a lung bulla was found on...

Authors: Polistina GE, Simioli F, Imitazione P, Lanza M, Annunziata A, Fiorentino G Abstract The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a recent pandemic that affected more than 5 million people worldwide. Chest high resolution computed tomography (HRCT) is an essential tool in diagnosis and management of the disease. Pulmonary parenchymal opacity is a typical sign of the disease, but not the only one. Pneumothorax, pneumomediastinum, bronchiectasis and cysts are probably underrated complications of COVID-19 that can worsen prognosis, in terms of prolonged hospitalization and need of oxygen therapy. In our single c...

We present a typical laboratory confirmed case of COVID-19 pneumonia, that was hospitalized due to hypoxemia but did not require mechanical ventilation. Although initially the patient was evaluated with a favorable outcome, in the third week of the disease, the symptomatology deteriorated due to a massive hypertensive pneumothorax with no known previous risk factor. Since the first cases of COVID-19 have been described, pneumothorax was characterized as a potential, though uncommon, complication. It has been reported that diffuse alveolar injury caused by SARS-CoV-2 can cause alveolar rupture, produce air leakage and inter...

The recent report of SARS-CoV-2-related bilateral pneumothorax [1], and similar reports of covid-19-related bilateral pneumothorax [2 –4] appear to be a predictable consequence of the observation that SARS-CoV-2 pulmonary lesions have a predominantly peripheral and subpleural distribution [5,6], and may be associated with the presence of “emphysema “[5], “cystic air spaces” [6], or “cystic changes” [7], all three ter ms arguably synonymous with pneumatocele. Rupture of a pneumatocele, in turn, may be the trigger for occurrence of pneumothrax, pneumomediastinum, and pneumopericardium, respectively.
