Spontaneous hemopneumothorax is a rare medical entity in which bleeding into the pleural space causes life-threatening condition in patients. Even though spontaneous pneumothorax cases are more commonly referenced in the literature, spontaneous hemopneumothorax is rarely encountered in clinical practice. We aimed to report a patient who presented to the emergency department in the state of shock and was diagnosed as a spontaneous hemopneumothorax.
