Pulmonary pseudocysts are lesions which develop rarely after blunt non-penetrating thoracic trauma, and heal spontaneously within 1-4 months without requiring a specific treatment History of thoracic trauma together with chest X-rays revealing cavitary lesion usually lead to the diagnosis. In some of the cases the presence of pulmonary contusion and hematoma may hide the cystic lesion. Computed tomography plays an important role in the early diagnosis of the lesions. In this case report a case of pulmonary pseudocyst is presented of which the diagnosis was made by computed tomography and required surgical treatment since there was no spontaneous resorption.
