INTRODUCTION: Endometriosis often afflicts the pelvic structures, but its insidious involvement of extrapelvic structures can pose additional diagnostic challenges. Pulmonary involvement leading to thoracic endometriosis syndrome (TES) can manifest as catamenial pneumothorax, hemothorax, hemoptysis, and pulmonary nodules, each accounting for 73%, 14%, 7%, and 6% of cases, respectively. We present a patient with three of these TES manifestations, who is further distinguished by an uncharacteristically massive hemothorax not previously described.
