Abstract

Pulmonary hernia (PH) is an uncommon condition. We report a case of PH secondary to thoracic surgical intervention. In addition to the rarity, the peculiarity of the case is given by the clinical course as it is characterized by a clinical latency before the onset. The patient showed risk factors such as obesity and poliomyelitis infection sequelae. We also reviewed the literature about this topic.
