INTRODUCTION: Catamenial pneumothorax was first identified in 1972, and is a rare cause of secondary spontaneous pneumothorax (SSP) in women between the ages of 30 and 50 years. It is seen in approximately 3-6% of spontaneous pneumothorax cases affecting women of menstruating age. SSPs are more prevalent among the 60-65 year old demographic. The incidence according to gender in the United States is 6.3 per 100,000 in men and 2 per 100,000 in women. The most common cause of SSP in both gender populations is chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and the incidence among individuals with COPD is 26 cases per 100,000.
