Pneumothorax had been reported in a few patients COVID-19. However, the significance and frequency of this association remains unclear. We report a 42-year-old man with COVID-19 disease who presented with left-sided hydropneumothorax. We managed the patient with intercostal tube drainage underwater seal, oxygen inhalation, injections remedesivir, dexamethasone, and ceftriaxone. The repeat computerised tomography scan of chest after 10 days revealed reduction in the left hydropneumothorax; no features suggestive of COVID-19 viral pneumoniawre evident.
