Spontaneous idiopathic hemopneumothorax is an unusual clinical condition which develops when bleeding occurs into the pleural cavity during the course of a spontaneous pneumothorax.
Three patients presenting this condition have been observed at Cleveland City Hospital during the last 10 years. The first two were observed on the medical wards within the last two years. The third was discovered as the result of a survey of cases of pneumothorax and of hemothorax observed at City Hospital during the years 1930-1940, excluding those cases in which active tuberculosis was known to be present.
