Abstract

Pneumatoceles are an infrequent manifestation of blunt chest trauma in children. They are important to recognize, however, as they are often present immediately after trauma and can be mistaken for more serious surgical conditions, such as diaphragmatic rupture. In this case report, we present one such case in which posttraumatic pneumatoceles were mistaken for diaphragmatic injury with bowel herniation.
