Spontaneous Pneumothorax, Pregnancy
Medicine and Health Sciences
Spontaneous pneumothorax is a rare but potentially life-threatening condition during pregnancy. We discuss a case of recurrent spontaneous pneumothorax during a single pregnancy. The pneumothorax occurred twice during the pregnancy, first in the second trimester and again in the third trimester with both times being managed conservatively. Due to the low prevalence of this condition management guidelines are few. We report our management of recurrent spontaneous pneumothorax during pregnancy to support the literature and current guidelines.
