Abstract

We have experienced a lung cancer patient discovered after operation of pneumothorax by chance. The patient was 44-year-old female who had been followed up for right pneumothorax in menstruation. She got pneumothorax in menstruation recurrently complained of chest pain. Chest X-p revealed right pneumothorax. We never discovered views of catamenial pneumothorax by thoracoscopy. Partial resection of hypertrophic pleura of right S1 was performed by video assist thoracoscopic surgery. Histological diagnosis was bulla formation with a tiny focus of squamous cell carcinoma in situ. In addition, right upper lobectomy and lymph node dissection were performed. Metastasis was not recognized any lymph node. No recurrence has been observed for 17 months.
