We report a case of a 41-year-old woman who underwent therapeutic embolization of an aberrant systemic artery of the lung. Except for chest pains immediately after embolization, she recovered well and has not experienced hemoptysis in the past 6 years. In such patients, coil embolization could be an alternative choice of treatment, with the expectation of an excellent long-term result despite ischemia of the corresponding lung parenchyma.
