A case with iatrogenic pneumothorax due to deep dry needling
Deep dry needling is an evidence-based treatment technique that is accepted and used by physical therapists for the treatment of musculoskeletal pain.

Published in the journal Radiology Case Reports, the authors present a case of iatrogenic pneumothorax due to deep dry needling over the posterior thorax.

A 36-year old presented with right chest pain 2 hours after dry needling for pain in his back muscles. Chest radiograph suggested small right pneumothorax and the finding was confirmed by computed tomography.

Clinical Pearls:-
- Not only should practitioners and their patients be aware of potential complications of dry needling, but also physicians who might see patients with complications.
