Pulmonary artery pseudoaneurysm caused by Streptococcus constellatus

, : Pulmonary artery pseudoaneurysm caused by Streptococcus constellatus. International Journal of Infectious Diseases 17(11): E1064-6

We report a rare case of mycotic pulmonary artery pseudoaneurysm (PAP) secondary to a lung abscess due to Streptococcus constellatus. PAP was confirmed by the pathological findings of the pseudoaneurysm, the presence of bacteria, and the microbiological analysis. PAP is uncommon, but it is important to recognize this condition because PAP can lead to fatal hemoptysis.
