Bronchopulmonary endometriosis is a rare cause of hemoptysis. We describe a woman with catamenial hemoptysis which was localized with chest CAT scanning and treated successfully with danazol. The proposed pathogenesis and manifestations of thoracic endometriosis are reviewed, and the use of new diagnostic and therapeutic modalities in its management are discussed.
