n SA Journal of Radiology - A tale of two embolisations : pictorial interlude




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.
