An at the first sight minor bluntthoracic trauma
An at the first sight minor bluntthoracic trauma can lead to major injuries of intrathoracic and even intra-abdominal organs. Performing a computer tomographic scan of the thorax is useful because the occurrence of rib fractures or a small pneumothorax is not always as obvious as presumed. In the case reported, several rib fractures with compression of the right hemithorax were present as well as a major scapula fracture.
