Abstract

Objective: While primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP) is common in adolescents and young adults, simultaneous bilateral PSP (SBPSP) is rare and can be life-threatening if it progresses to tension pneumothorax. This study reviewed cases of PSP to identify the clinical features of SBPSP. Methods: All patients with PSP diagnosed and treated between June 1996 and June 2006 were reviewed, and the clinicoradiological features and outcomes were evaluated. Results: Of the 616 patients with 807 episodes of PSP, 13 had SBPSP (1.6%) at first presentation, and all were male (mean age 20.9 ± 4.7 years, range 16-25 years). Compared with the non-SBPSP patients, SBPSP patients had significantly lower body weight and BMI (P = 0.018 and
