Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia is a frequent manifestation of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). It commonly presents with nonproductive cough, fever, and dyspnea. We report this case of P carinii pneumonia presenting with hemoptysis, since to the best of our knowledge, hemoptysis has not been reported to be a presenting manifestation of P carinii pneumonia. Autopsy revealed multiple lung cavities.
