Abstract

Pneumothorax should be included in the differential diagnosis of any patient presenting with sudden onset chest pain or dyspnea, and the diagnosis should be made promptly and accurately. Catamenial pneumothorax, although a rare entity, is a possibility that should be considered in menstruating females presenting with chest pain and/or dyspnea. This case serves to demonstrate the effectiveness of point-of-care ultrasonography in making the prompt diagnosis of a pneumothorax, which in this case was a catamenial pneumothorax.
