Abstract: Primary lung cancer with pneumothorax as a primary symptom is very rare. The case studied herein was make, sixty years old. The patient had a complaint of chest pain and dyspnea and was diagnosed as having pneumothorax on the radiograph. At the same time, a shadow of tumor was recognized around the upper lobes of the left lung and accordingly bronchoscopy was performed. As a result of transbronchial biopsies, malignant cells were detected. The left upper lobectomy was performed and it was diagnosed to be large cell carcinoma. Mechanism of the pneumothorax was thought to be caused by the burst of the visceral pleura because of the abrupt enlargement of the tumor.
