    Primary pneumothorax affects 0.01% of the population. 10% of cases have a family history of pneumothorax but in the majority, a definitive genetic diagnosis is not made. We report a 26-year-old, white British woman who presented with left apical pneumothorax (figure 1a). Previously, she had migraines, multiple stress fractures in her right foot, myopia, easy bruising, lumbar scoliosis and spontaneous dislocation of the right patella. She had no previous history of pneumothoraces or any other respiratory problems, and had never smoked.
