Traumatic ­lung her­nia is a ­rare diag­no­sis. A 52-­year-old ­female motor­ve­hi­cle pas­sen­ger was admit­ted as a trau­ma ­patient ­after a motor­ve­hi­cle acci­dent. She was ­found to ­have an incar­cer­at­ed ­lung her­nia. Size of the her­nia, incar­cer­a­tion and res­pir­a­to­ry insuf­fi­cien­cy man­dat­ed imme­di­ate sur­gi­cal inter­ven­tion ­with repo­si­tion, drain­age and sta­bil­isa­tion of the ­chest ­wall. The post­op­er­a­tive ­course was unevent­ful. The man­age­ment of the ­patient is dis­cussed and the avail­able lit­er­a­ture ­reviewed.
