|Abstract:||Acute ipsilateral or bilateral pulmonary oedema following lung re-expansion after pleurocentesis or treatment of pneumothorax is an unusual clinical phenomenon that may have serious consequences. It usually occurs when the chronically collapsed lung is rapidly reexpanded. There are, however, no reported cases of this complication following one-lung ventilation used to facilitate surgery. A report of the occurrence of unilateral re-expansion oedema in a young female undergoing scoliosis correction is described.|
