Hemoptysis is a common symptom in respiratory clinical practice, but very rarely the images of Rasmussenís aneurysm are demonstrated in a case of hemoptysis. In this report of a 53 year old man with massive hemoptysis, we are able to demonstrate a Rasmussenís aneurysm by contrast enhanced computer tomography (CECT) of the thorax along with features of pulmonary tuberculosis.
