Spontaneous hemopneumothorax is a rare, potentially life-threatening condition occurring in adolescence. In general, spontaneous hemopneumothorax has not been associated with other pulmonary vascular malformations in adolescents. We present a case of a 17-year-old adolescent boy with hemopneumothorax from vascularized pleural blebs who was also noted to have a pulmonary hemangioma.
