Traumatic Pneumatocoele (Pseudocyst) -A case report

Post pneumonia pneumatocoeles are known in children but traumatic pneumatocoele formation is a rare entity. The purpose of reporting this case is to make the clinicians aware of this condition which can be easily managed conservatively. Unnecessary surgical intervention should be avoided in such case. We are reporting a case of traumatic pneumatocoele treated conservatively without any complications. Clinician should be aware of this condition so that he will be able to diagnose and manage this condition conservatively.
