Endometriosis is a common disease found in reproductive age women, but pulmonary endometriosis is rare. We present a 21-year-old female with catamenial chest pain, chest tightness, severe cough, and hemoptysis. Though we could not find any definite intrapulmonary endometriotic lesion by computed tomography and bronchoscope, she was diagnosed to have pulmonary endometriosis due to the typical clinical symptoms. After 6 months of GnRH agonist application, the symptoms were completely relieved. She has been followed up and has been symptoms free for at least 6 months after administration of GnRH agonist.
