Spontaneous hemomediastinum is a rare pathological event due to bleeding disorders, mediastinal organ hemorrhage or idiopathic causes. It usually presents with chest pain and dyspnea, which can lead to confusion with other clinical conditions. The election diagnostic method is CT and treatment depends on underlying etiology, aimed on controlling hemorrhages, if present. In this paper, we present a case of spontaneous hemomediastinum and hemothorax after bronchial artery aneurysm dissection treated with endovascular embolization and chest drainage. Keywords: Spontaneous hemomediastinum; Bronchial artery aneurysm; Mediastinal bleeding; Endovascular treatment.
