Abstract

Rounded atelectasis is an unusual form of lung collapse that develops as a consequence of pleural diseases. Among a variety of conditions, asbestos inhalation has been attributed in most cases, but many other causes have also been implicated. Here, we describe the first case of rounded atelectasis and pneumothorax associated with pulmonary lymphagioleiomyomatosis.
