Publication types: Case Reports ; English Abstract ; Journal Article
Hemoptysis is a rare but often severe event in sarcoidosis. It usually occurs in patients with advanced, fibrotic lung disease. We herein report the case of a 36-year old female patient with type II pulmonary sarcoidosis who presented with abundant hemoptysis very early during the course of her disease. Two attempts to embolize bronchial arteries remained unsuccessful and surgery was eventually required to stop the bleeding. Clinical, microbiological, radiological and pathological data indicate that haemoptysis was caused by systemic hypervascularization around sarcoidosis granuloma.
