Abstract
Tension pneumothorax occurred in a 42 year old man with pulmonary tuberculosis during induction of general anesthesia for left lobectomy. Rupture of emphysematous bullse, presumably due to positive pressure ventilation employed during induction, was identified by immediate thoracotomy. The patient made an uneventful recovery.
