Abstract

Rupture of the pulmonary artery (PA) or one of its branches during a right heart catheterization is a complication that is rare but remains fatal in almost 50 of cases.1 We report a case of PA false aneurysm caused by PA rupture, which presented as a lung mass 10 days after catheterization, that was correctly identified and successfully treated.
