Pneumothorax with coronavirus disease 2019 in non-ventilated patients: a
single-center retrospective case series
Of the 1061 patients of coronavirus disease-2019 admitted to our field
hospital, eight patients (0.75%) had pneumothorax. The mean age of
incidence was 79.9 years; six of these patients (75%) died. Although
pneumothorax is a rare complication of coronavirus disease-2019, it
suggests a poor prognosis in elderly patients.
