  1. A significant cause of spontaneous pneumothorax is not listed in this article. People with Marfan syndrome, vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (VEDS), Loeys-Dietz syndrome, and other similar genetic connective tissue disorders are at an increased risk of having a collapsed lung. In addition, not all of the people with these conditions are tall and thin. I have VEDS.
