Post-traumatic extrapleural hematoma is a collection of blood in the space between the parietal pleura and the endothoracic fascia. It usually results from thoracic trauma. The diagnosis is suspected in front of a characteristic radiographic image. The clinical condition of the patient as well as the importance of the bleeding may lead to a thoracotomy for hemostasis. In this case, we report a case of extrapleural hematoma in a 64-year-old patient following a thoracic trauma.
