Abstract: A congenital aberrant vessel in the pleural cavity has rarely been described in the literature. It has been known to be a source of bleeding in spontaneous hemopneumothorax. As a result of the lack of pleural adhesions around the vessel, a congenital aberrant vessel is prone to deceleration injury. This is a case of massive hemothorax caused by a ruptured aberrant congenital vessel in a blunt trauma victim who sustained a two meter fall.
