Abstract

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.
