Abstract

Abstract

Tracheobronchial disruption is an uncommon injury usually associated with severe blunt thoracic trauma. It rarely occurs in isolation. We report a case of isolated avulsion of the right main bronchus occurring after a high-speed car collision with severe head injury. Management of this condition is briefly discussed.
