fig0010: (A) The chest radiography on admission showed complete collapse of the left lung and a mediastinal shift to the right. (B) The chest computed tomography demonstrated the small bowel, transverse colon, and most of the stomach in the left pleural cavity.

Mentions: The pain was not relieved by ileus tube decompression for 24 h following admission (Fig. 1b). Chest radiography performed the next day revealed complete collapse of the left lung and a right shift of the mediastinum (Fig. 2a). Computed tomography revealed dilated bowel above the diaphragm and intestinal obstruction with suspicion of gangrenous changes (Fig. 2b).
