Abstract

Little is known about pulmonary alveolar microlithiasis, a disease characterized by severe lung calcification. We report only the second case of an associated spontaneous pneumothorax. Bullous disease, which was encountered at the time of surgery, proved impossible to manage using a video-assisted approach. The difficulties related to its management are discussed in this case report.
