Bullectomy for “bong lung” in an 18 year-old male presenting with spontaneous pneumothorax
Abstract
SUMMARY.

An 18 year-old male who had smoked cannabis for four years presented with a spontaneous pneumothorax and was treated by apical bullectomy. The surgical and histopathological findings were characteristic of “bong lung”. This patient is the youngest reported in the literature and the case highlights the fact that the disease can occur even in adolescents after a few years of smoking cannabis.
