Medical records of 100 spontaneous pneumothorax cases have been retrospectively analysed. According to the treatment given, patients were divided into four groups-(a) conservative, (b) thoracentesis, (c) chest tube thoracostomy, and (d) pleurodesis. Complete lung expansion was achieved in 92% cases, lung expanded partially in four percent of cases and four percent terminated treatment prematurely against medical advice. Profiles of relapse rate, complications and hospital stay had been quite satisfactory.
