In 1959 HUGHES and STOVIN described a syndrome consisting of multiple pulmonary aneurysms and peripheral venous thrombosis. Since that time several cases of the Hughes-Stovin syndrome have been published. We present the case of a 25 yr old man who, in addition to the classical symptoms, had multiple aneurysms of the bronchial arteries, which were the cause of severe haemoptysis. An aneurysm of the left hepatic artery was also detected. To our knowledge this is the first description of aneurysms of the bronchial arteries in Hughes-Stovin syndrome. Bleeding was successfully treated by double embolization of bronchial arteries via transfemoral catheter.
