Abstract

Pneumoscrotum occurred in a 53-year-old man as a complication after pulmonary resection for carcinoma. Recognition of this entity and its conservative management are crucial to a positive outcome and prevention of unnecessary interventions based on the differential diagnosis. A review of the literature is included with this description of an unusual complication.
