Lung rupture is very rare. During a military drill, some horses
fell down, and one of them died of copious bleeding from the nasal
cavity. Autopsy showed a large amount of blood in the chest
(15 liter on the right side, 1 liter on the left side), separation of the
pulmonary pleura from the parenchyma, fist-sized rupture in the lung
tissue in this separated area and surrounding blood infiltration.
