Abstract

Case Presentation: A 44-year-old man presented to the ED with acute massive hemoptysis and hypoxia. His history was notable for 1 year of progressively worsening shortness of breath at both rest and with exertion. He denied chest discomfort and endorsed near syncope while driving in recent months. He recently had been treated with antibiotics for two episodes of presumed pneumonia, based on right lower lobe opacification on chest radiography.
