ABSTRACT
The article presents the case of a 73-year-old man diagnosed with spontaneous rupture of an intercostal artery aneurysm. He was presented with right shoulder pain and breathlessness during air travel. His chest radiograph demonstrated a right pleural opacity and it revealed to be an extrapleural haematoma. In connection, images of chest radiograph, contrast-enhanced computer tomography (CT) and selective digital subtraction angiogram of the patient are presented.
