Abstract

Although pneumothorax is a well-known complication of COVID-19 pneumonia especially in patients requiring mechanical ventilation, bronchopleural fistula causing persistent pneumothorax in sole COVID-19 pneumonia is extremely rare. In this case, we illustrate that bronchopleural fistula can be found in COVID-19 pneumonia, even with no risk factors nor mechanical ventilation administration.
