Abstract

Haemothorax is the presence of significant amount of blood in the pleural space. Pleural pathology is an uncommon complication of pancreatitis while massive haemothorax due to pathology in pancreas is extremely rare. The case report is about a 32 years old chronic alcoholic presented with breathlessness in the emergency department. On evaluating the case, we found a rare association of haemothorax with pancreatic pseudocyst. Also it is important to note that a significant number of pleural pathologies remain undiagnosed and an intra abdominal cause is often overlooked leading to delay in diagnosis.

Keywords: Haemothorax; Pancreatic pseudocyst.
