Introduction: Evaluation of a suspected pneumothorax by ultrasonography is a routine procedure in emergency departments. Ultrasonography is highly sensitive for the detection of a pneumothorax and yet has some false-positive results. Case Report: In this case report, we present a 60-year-old man with achalasia that was misinterpreted as a pneumothorax in routine bedside thoracic ultrasonography.Conclusion: Achalasia is a rare cause of false-positive reports of pneumothorax by bedside ultrasonography
Giriş: Şüpheli pnömotoraksın ultrasonografi ile değerlendirilmesi acil servis bölümlerinde yapılan rutin bir işlemdir. Ultrasonografi pnömotoraksın tespit edilmesinde oldukça duyarlıdır, ancak bazı yanlış-pozitif sonuçlar vermektedir. Olgu sunumu: Bu olgu sunumunda, rutin yatak başı torasik ultrasonografide pnömotoraks olarak yanlış değerlendirilen akalazyası olan 60 yaşındaki bir erkek hastayı sunmaktayız. Sonuç: Akalazya, pnömotoraksın yatak başı ultrasonografi ile elde edilen yanlış-pozitif sonuçlarının nadir bir nedenidir.
