Abstract

A case of bleeding pulmonary artery pseudoaneurysm secondary to squamous cell lung cancer is reported. The patient presented with massive hemoptysis, diagnosis was made with multidetector computed tomography, and the pseudoaneurysm was successfully embolized with platinum coils. Hemoptysis ceased following the procedure.
