Familial pneumothoraces and bullae.
  1. G J Gibson


    The cases of three sisters who presented with spontaneous pneumothoraces are described. In two of the patients large bullae were clearly demonstrable. No recognisable associations of bullae or pneumothorax were present and there was no evidence of generalised emphysema. The cases suggest a familial predisposition to the development of bullae in otherwise apparently healthy lungs.
