Abstract

Blunt thoracic trauma is among the major causes of mortality in setting of acute trauma. Early mortality in chest trauma is often preventable; however, chest trauma can lead to delayed complications. Extra pleural hematoma is among one of them. 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.
