Abstract

Background: Pulmonary artery aneurysm is a rare but fatal complication of Idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension. There are no clear guidelines about its optimal management. Case Report: We report a 28-year-old male admitted to the hospital with hemoptysis. He had a suspicion of pulmonary arterial hypertension since the age of 14 years but he was lost to follow-up. The patient was diagnosed with pulmonary artery aneurysm due to idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension. The patient subsequently died one month later due to hemoptysis secondary to suspected rupture. Conclusion: The diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary hypertension is hard because of its non-specific nature. Early diagnosis and treatment can prevent complications.
