Bronchial artery aneurysm occurs rarely but can cause a life-threatening hemorrhage when it ruptures. The traditional therapy has been aneurysm resection or transcatheter arterial embolization. We report a case of mediastinal bronchial artery aneurysm which could not be occluded with transcatheter arterial embolization and instead was treated with a thoracic aortic stent graft and embolization with fibrin sealant.
