Abstract

A case of bilateral pseudoaneurysms of the pulmonary arteries caused by blunt chest injury is presented. Although this is a very rare complication, this entity should always be suspected in a patient with hemoptysis and a radiodensity on chest radiograph following chest injury. Selection of operative procedures should be based on the location or the extent of the pseudoaneurysm.
