Re-expansion pulmonary edema (REPE) is a rare complication of treatment of spontaneous pneumothorax or large pleural effusions. As a complication of spontaneous pneumothorax treatment, only few cases are documented, and even fewer document the role of non-invasive continuous positive airway pressure mechanical ventilation for treatment of this rare entity. We present a case of 23-year-old man who presented with left-sided pneumothorax, developed unilateral REPE and was treated with non-invasive continuous positive airway pressure.
