Moderate hemoptysis caused by Hughes-Stovin syndrome
AbstractHughes and Stovin first reported a syndrome consisting of multiple pulmonary artery aneurysms and venous thrombosis in 1959. Here, we encountered a 42-year old woman who had hemoptysis revealing a Hughes- Stovin syndrome. Helical computed tomography showed multiple pulmonary artery aneurysms with pulmonary thromboembolism. The patient was treated with steroid therapy, cyclophosphamide and anticoagulation with a good response.
