A 55-year-old man presented with massive hemoptysis following coronary artery bypass grafting and repair of a left ventricular aneurysm. Radiological and bronchoscopic examinations revealed no bronchial cause. The findings of computed tomography (CT) of the chest and echocardiography showed a pseudoaneurysm of the left ventricle. Surgical exploration confirmed that the pseudoaneurysm communicated with the lung parenchyma.
