Traumatic subarachnoid-pleural fistula (TSAPF) is a rare complication of thoracic trauma. Late diagnosis is a problematic dilemma in these cases. Patients with thoracic injury have persistent pleural leakage, thoracic vertebral injury, pneumocephalus, urinary retention and paraplegia should alert the surgeon for TSAPF. Two cases of TSAPF due to gunshot injury are reported.
