VELASQUEZ, María Elena  and  VELASQUEZ, Mauricio. Catamenial pneumotorax. rev. colomb. cir. [online]. 2015, vol.30, n.4, pp.286-291. ISSN 2011-7582.

Catamenial pneumothorax is the pneumothorax that appears in women within 72 hours of the menstrual cycle. This is a very rare pathology and only a few case series have been published in Latin America and in the world literature. In this article a world wide literature search was conducted, with emphasis on the diagnostic process and the multidisciplinary management, and a clinical case is presented.

Keywords : Pneumothorax; menstrual cycle; endometriosis; thoracic surgery; video-assisted.
