Excerpt

Pseudoaneurysm secondary to endovascular graft leakage is a potential complication of aortic repair. Hemoptysis due to leakage or rupture of aortic pseudoaneurysm into the lung parenchyma has also previously been described.1,2 In majority of cases, it occurs in patients who have previously undergone instrumentation of the aorta.3–5 We report a case of pseudoaneurysm of aorta presenting as endobronchial mass in a patient with prior instrumentation of the aorta. This entity should be considered in the differential diagnosis of hemoptysis and endobronchial mass in patients with prior instrumentation of the aorta.
