Hemoptysis is one common presenting complaint in respiratory clinics. Bronchial artery aneurysm is one of the rare causes of hemoptysis. Here, we present a case of a 64-year-old male, asthmatic, and hypertensive with a previous history of tuberculosis presented with hemoptysis. On bronchial angiogram, he was found to have a right bronchial artery aneurysm which was treated with bronchial artery coiling.
