Abstract

Rupture of pulmonary artery pseudoaneurysm (PAP) can result in life-threatening hemoptysis. A 65-year-old male was diagnosed with PAP based on chest contrasted computer tomography (CT). He coughed up massive amounts of blood and could not be resuscitated. In the autopsy, macroscopic and microscopic findings supported the clinical course.
