INTRODUCTION: Majority of cases of haemoptysis arises from the bronchial artery. Bronchial artery embolization (BAE) remains a life-saving procedure and minimally invasive, hence, serves as the first line of treatment for the most medically compromised patient. Major complications are rare and arise from the unintentional, nontarget embolization, since the bronchial arteries vary considerably in distribution. We present a rare complication post-BAE in a young patient who presented with massive haemoptysis in our Institution.
