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.
