Pulmonary pseudoaneurysms are an uncommon but life-threatening condition of congenital or acquired cause, most commonly involving the branch pulmonary arteries and generally requiring emergent intervention. We describe a case of postoperative main pulmonary artery pseudoaneurysm after a complex aortic arch procedure, in which thoracic computed tomography provided full information for its definition before surgical correction.
