A tale of two embolisations

Abstract

Chronic pulmonary tuberculosis may present as massive haemoptysis. Haemoptysis usually originates from the bronchial artery but the pulmonary
artery might be the culprit vessel in recurrent haemoptysis. We present a case where bronchial artery embolisation had to be augmented by pulmonary  artery coil embolisation for a Rasmussen’s aneurysm after recurrent haemoptysis. In cases where recurrent haemorrhage occurs, sources
other than the bronchial artery should be considered.
