Bilkay SEREZ | Mehmet Furkan SAHIN


Abstract: Pneumopericardium indicates the free air in the pericardium. It can develop secondary to many different reasons and the most common cause in etiology is trauma. Other pathologies are usually accompanied in cases of pneumopericardium developed secondary to penetrating thoracic traumas, and isolated pneumopericardium is a very rare condition. In this article, a rare case of isolated pneumopericardium developed in a 82-year-old male patient without any additional pathological lesion secondary to a penetrating chest trauma is presented in the light of the literature.
