Abstract

Unilateral post-traum atic and paramediastinal lung cysts are uncommon. Conservative therapeutic measures are usually sufficient. This report describes a patient whose bilateral post-traumatic paramediastinal lung cysts, a previously undescribed entity, were presumed to be bilateral hemidiaphragmatic hernias and, consequently, led to unnecessary surger.
