Abstract :

Background.Simultaneous primary bilateral spontaneous pneumothorax is an extremely rare and fatal condition. Patients usually have no relevant medical conditions. However,few cases may have risk factors as smoking, being young, and male gender. We reported a case of a healthy male who presented with BPSP. Case Presentation. A 40–year–old man presented with acute worsening shortness of eath overnight. Chest X–ray performed showed bilateral large pneumothorax with significantly compressed mediastinum. Chest tubes were placed bilaterally with immediate clinical improvement. However, the chest tubes continued to have an air leak without full lungs expansion on left side suggesting BPF. The patient underwent instillation of autologous blood patch twice.The patient had been doing well with no recurrence of pneumothorax. Conclusion. Bilateral spontaneous Pneumothorax is a rare clinical condition ,Due to its life–threatening nature, early diagnosis and appropriate treatment in SBSP case can save patient’s life.
