The article presents the case of a 73-year-old female injured in a bicycle accident, who was diagnosed with a left hemothorax. Initially, a chest drain was inserted and the pleural hematoma was evacuated. Then a thoracotomy was performed. A hematoma debridement and decortication with a subsequent tissue biopsy was carried out and a final diagnosis of spindle cell sarcoma was made. There is a brief discussion on the differential diagnosis of spontaneous hemothorax and its management.
