Traumatic pulmonary pseudocyst is a rare complication of chest trauma that has been poorly documented and usually resolves without specific treatment. Here, we present a case of pulmonary pseudocyst in a child with chest trauma without obvious symptoms. It is important to consider this diagnosis in patients with chest trauma to avoid unnecessary invasive procedures.
