Tuberculous broncho-aortic fistula has not been reported, to our knowledge. This is a case report of a 60-year-old woman with massive hemoptysis secondary to a broncho-aortic fistula. The pathologic study of the pulmonary specimens showed tuberculous granulomas with caseous necrosis and tubercle bacilli in the pulmonary tissue and the fistulous area.
