About Pneumothorax.org

Pneumothorax.org is a not for profit web site founded and developed by Karim Jina. Karim was hospitalized twice in July of 2000 due to two spontaneous pneumothoraces. He underwent surgery to repair his left lung and has had a successful recovery. As a direct result of his experiences, Karim felt that more needed to be done to provide information to those who have been and continue to be affected by pneumothoraces.
