Abstract

We present the case of a 20-year-old man with hemoptysis for 3 years. Chest radiography revealed increased pulmonary vascular opacities in the left lower lung field. Computed tomography showed an anomalous systemic artery arising from descending aorta supplying the basal segments of the left lower lobe. Bronchial tree was normal. Pulmonary artery angiogram revealed a hypoplastic inferior lobar branch of the left pulmonary artery. There was no direct communication between anomalous artery and pulmonary veins. We diagnosed our case as aortopulmonary collateral with normal lung parenchyma. Coil embolization of the anomalous systemic artery was performed. The patient survived well without evidence of hemoptysis for 18 months after coil embolization.
