Abstract

A 55-year-old man underwent a right pneumonectomy for squamous cell carcinoma. Three weeks later, he was seen in the emergency room for recurrent episodes of shortness of breath. A right open bronchial stump developed. A ventilation study was performed to identify a bronchopleural fistula. It revealed an immediate accumulation of the radiotracer in the right thoracic cavity.
