Abstract

In the 1930-50s, before antimicrobial drugs, collapse therapy was the mainstream of treatment for cavitary pulmonary tuberculosis. We present an 78-year-old man with a history of pulmonary tuberculosis treated with plombage in 1962, who presented with axillary pleurocutaneous fistula (Figure 1). The patient was submitted to surgical extraction of 21 lucite balls, pleurocutaneous drainage and thoracoplasty (Figure 2).
