The patient was a 68 year-old woman who had a history of treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis 35 years ago. She has experienced dyspnea and hemosputa since several years ago and has been followed up as having chronic empyema. She was admitted to our hospital due to recent exacerbation of symptoms. X-ray films and computed tomography scans of the chest showed the right thoracic cavity to be totally filled with a mass and the shift of mediastinum to the left side. After several days from admission, she needed mechanical ventilation support due to dyspnea exacerbation. Emergency decortication with right pneumonectomy through median sternotomy with anterolateral incision was performed. Postoperative course was uneventful. Pathlogical diagnosis was chronic expanding hematoma.
