Birt-Hogg-Dube syndrome refers to a dermatologic syndrome, consisting of small papular skins lesion distributed on the scalp, forehead, face and neck, which is autosomal dominantly inherited. Subsequently patients may develop concomitant renal and thoracic pathology. We report the case of a patient with Birt-Hogg-Dube syndrome diagnosed after spontaneous pneumothorax.
