We experienced a case of incomplete traumatic rupture of the bronchus which was operated on two months after a traffic accident. Traumatic rupture of the bronchus is rare after blunt chest injury but it can have serious consequences. Early surgical repair is recommended without repeated attempts to remove granulation tissue if the initial attempt at non-surgical repair results in failure, even in the case of incomplete rupture.
