Occurs when air leaks into the space between your lung and chest wall. This air pushes on the outside of your lung and makes it collapse. Can be caused by a blunt or penetrating chest injury, certain medical procedures, or damage from underlying lung disease. In most cases, only a portion of the lung collapses.
