A bronchial artery (BA) aneurysm is a rare, life-threatening disease when it ruptures. Recently, we experienced a case of massive hemoptysis due to a BA aneurysm rupture in a pulmonary tuberculosis cavity, treated with BA embolization followed by surgical resection of the cavitary lesion. To our knowledge, this is the first case of a BA aneurysm associated with cavitary pulmonary tuberculosis. (Korean J Med 2014;86:228-231)
