DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.113

ABSTRACT

Tracheobronchial rupture as a result of blunt thoracic trauma is extremely rare in children; it is a life-threatening event, as it progresses rapidly and causes respiratory problems. The causes of non-penetrating tracheobronchial injury include blunt cervical trauma, endotracheal intubation, and other iatrogenic reasons.

This paper presents the clinical and radiological results of a pediatric patient who developed an isolated tracheal rupture following blunt thoracic trauma.
