Massive hemoptysis is a life-threatening situation and can have a variety of underlying causes. Bronchial arteries are mostly the source of bleeding but in rare cases an aberrant systemic artery may be present, causing hemoptysis. Here, we present a patient in whom an aberrant systemic artery was defined to be the cause of hemoptysis. Obstruction of this artery by videothoracoscopic clipping was curative for the patient's hemoptysis.
