Recurrent hemoptysis due to aortobronchopulmonary fistula of false aortic aneurysm associated with repair of rupture of the sinus of Valsalva

Recurrent hemoptysis due to aortobronchopulmonary fistula of false aortic aneurysm associated with repair of rupture of the sinus of Valsalva

Internal Medicine 31(8): 1043-1046

A 54-year-old man presented with recurrent hemoptysis of one year duration. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated a saccular aneurysm of the ascending aorta. The aneurysm was intraoperatively found to have formed on the superior surface of the site of aortotomy suture placed during previous repair of rupture of the sinus of Valsalva and to have a fistulous communication to the lung. CT and MRI were very useful in the diagnosis of the aneurysm as the cause of hemoptysis.
