Abstract A 3-year-old boy with a trivial blunt chest injury presented with a massive bronchopleural leak without any hilar vascular injury. On emergency exploration he had a complete transection of the right main bronchus. An end-to-end anastomosis of the transected bronchial ends was performed. At 1-month clinical and radiologic follow-up, the anastomosis had healed well.
