Large Extra-pleural Hematoma

Owing to the scarcity of literature present on the extra pleural hematoma and its management after blunt thoracic trauma, we, hereby, report a case of 50 year old man who sustained bilateral multiple rib fractures with no hemothorax after blunt thoracic trauma. Patient developed large radio-opaque shadow in right hemithorax four days after injury which later was diagnosed as extra pleural hematoma and was successfully managed with limited thoracotomy.
