|Abstract:||Two Ghanaian women, aged 21 and 29 years, who were involved in road traffic accidents sustaining blunt trauma to the chest and who had delayed diagnosis of their total bronchial rupture and underwent successful surgical repair 18 and 29 months, respectively after injury are reported with a review of the literature. We believe these to be the first reported cases of delayed diagnosis and successful repair of total bronchial rupture in Tropical Africa.|
