Segmental mediolytic arteriopathy (SMA) is an extremely rare condition of uncertain etiology causing degeneration of arterial media, intramural dissection or the rupture of aneurysms. It is recognized as a rare cause of fatal intra-abdominal bleeding. We report the first case of recurrent intra-abdominal bleeding secondary to SMA in a lung transplant patient, with a further complication of lymphoproliferative disease in the transplanted lung. We discuss the pathogenesis, clinical presentation, imaging characteristics and the complexities of management in this case.
