Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a case of a saccular atherosclerotic aneurysm of the thoracic aorta which was incorporated almost entirely within the upper lobe of the right lung. The aneurysm ruptured into the lung causing massive haemoptysis and sudden death. We have been unable to find a similar case reported in the literature.
