However, a small percentage of life-threatening hemoptysis occurs in pulmonary arteries weakened by infectious processes caused by mycobacteria or fungi. Three days later she presented with a new hemoptysis episode, hemoglobin level drop and hemodynamic instability promp- ting an urgent thoracic computer tomography angiography CTA scan request.
