A rare cause of hemoptysis in patient with chronic kidney disease: pseudoaneurysm of pulmonary vein related to lung malignancy

Neeraj Singla, Suraj Agrawal

Abstract


Hemoptysis is a common presentation of underlying pulmonary or bronchial artery aneurysm. Amongst the causes of non-life-threatening hemoptysis are old healed pulmonary Koch’s, aspergilloma, bronchogenic carcinoma, blunt or penetrating trauma. Pseudoaneurysm of pulmonary vein has not been reported in the literature as a cause of hemoptysis in nontraumatic patients. A very rare case of pulmonary vein pseudoaneurysm as a cause of hemoptysis in patient with lung malignancy along with chronic kidney disease is presented in current report.
