ABSTRACT: Posttraumatic pulmonary pseudocysts (PTPPCs) are air-, fluid-, or blood-filled spaces in the lung parenchyma. They are rare findings and are associated with substantial blunt force trauma to the chest. Cases in the literature have primarily reported PTPPCs as a result of motor vehicle accidents. There has not been a case of PTPPC reported in the child abuse literature. This case report describes a child with a PTPPC secondary to inflicted abusive injury.
