What is Catamenial Pneumothorax? (Definition)
(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, Catamenial pneumothorax (CP) is the most common form of thoracic endometriosis syndrome. Women with catamenial pneumothorax have recurrent episodes of pneumothorax that occur within 72 hours before or after the start of menstruation. Pneumothorax is the medical term for a collapsed lung. The condition most commonly occurs in women aged 30-40 years, but has been diagnosed in young girls as early as 10 years of age and post menopausal women (exclusively in women of menstrual age) most with a history of pelvic endometriosis.
