Breve resumo:
Intercostal lung hernia is an uncommon entity, mostly resulting from violent chest trauma. In this report, a case of a patient with a post-traumatic incarcerated pulmonary herniation is presented, and we also describe a brief literature review on this subject. This case is about a polytraumatized patient, whose chest trauma caused a lung hernia. Urgent surgical intervention, which was imposed by cardio-respiratory instability, involved a thoracic and abdominal approach, therefore allowing repair of both pulmonary and intra-abdominal lesions.​
