Özet

Simultaneous bilateral spontaneous pneumothorax (SBSP) is a very rare type of pneumothorax. Most reported cases are associated with underlying lung diseases. In a small number of pediatric studies, SBSP was found to be associated with human bocavirus bronchiolitis, Langerhans cell histiocytosis, and Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection. The present work examines an interesting case of type 2 congenital pulmonary airway malformation presenting with SBSP and bilateral multiple parenchymal cysts.
