Conservative management of large intrapulmonary haemorrhage following penetrating chest trauma

Penetrating chest wounds can hide a range of life threatening injuries and often require emergency surgical management.

This is a case of a patient with a large intrapulmonary haematoma who was managed conservatively and made a good recovery without need for surgery.
