Hydropneumothorax is an abnormal presence of air and fluid in the pleural space. The most common cause is tuberculosis. Patients generally present with complaints of cardiorespiratory distress, cough, weight loss and anorexia. In this case report we present a case about a 55 patient who presented with chronic cough and was a known smoker. Xray followed by HRCT helped in diagnosis of hydropneumothorax.
