ABSTRACT
In old age, a traumatic pulmonary pseudocyst is an extremely rare condition that generally develops after blunt chest trauma. It is more common among pediatric and young adult patients. We report three elderly patients who presented with chest symptoms after blunt chest trauma and whose computed tomography showed post-traumatic pulmonary pseudocysts.
Key words: Traumatic pulmonary pseudocyst, Chest injury, Computed tomography
