Abstract
Traumatic gastropleural fistulae are exceedingly rare and few cases have been reported in the literature. This letter reports on a number of cases including the management of a 27-year old patient with gunshot injury to the left thorax, complicated by a left haemopneumothorax and acute traumatic gastropleural fistula.
