In July, 2011, a 32-year-old man presented with thoracic pain radiating to the left arm and upper dorsum, shortness of breath, and palpitations. He had had upper back tension for 6 months. Medical history was unremarkable apart from moderate nicotine use (two pack-years). Echocardiography, electrocardiography, and laboratory tests were unremarkable, excluding a cardiac event. CT of the chest after chest radiography showed a large bulla of 16 cm diameter in the right hemithorax (figure A). We did not detect radiological evidence of underlying pulmonary disease. The bulla wall was unremarkable and no structures were seen within the bulla.
