Spontaneous pneumothorax

The initial chest x-ray confirms a large pneumothorax. A seldinger-type drain has been inserted with partial lung re-expansion. Drainage of the pneumothorax continued and there was no complication.

An underlying cause was not found. The young chap recovered uneventfully, the drain was removed and he was discharged home.
