Thoracic endometriosis (EMS) syndrome is a rare which includes four recognized clinical entities, namely catamenial pneumothorax, catamenial haemothorax, catamenial haemoptysis and lung nodules. Catamenial haemothorax may present in association with catamenial pneumothorax, but this occurrence is uncommon. We report a case of recurrent catamenial haemopneumothorax (CHP) in a young patient who underwent two surgical procedures without complete recovery and review literature for optimum medical and surgical management of recurrent CHP for best outcome.
