INTRODUCTION: Pulmonary artery aneurysm (PAA) is a rare anomaly that has many etiologies. The most serious complication of PAA is fatal hemoptysis resulting from its rupture.1 There is no guidelines for optimal management. However, surgical management may be recommended.2 Transcatheter embolization with coils is an effective and safe method for control of hemoptysis with non-significant complications.1 However, serious complications may occur. We report a case of right pulmonary artery aneurysm treated with coil embolization followed by endobronchial migration of the coil and coughing it out.
