Gynaecology and Obstetrics

Catamenial pneumothorax is a clinical variant of spontaneous pneumothorax. Its etiology is attributed either, generally, to endometriosis involving the diaphragm, or to prostaglandin-induced bronchiolar constriction. Clinically, it coincides with the onset of menstruation and resolves during the subsequent days.

Treatment is currently based upon progestational agents and antigonadotrophins.
