Hemoptysis, accompanying various chronic lung diseases, some systemic diseases, infections, structural heart diseases, or syndromes is a clinical condition that is quite mortal when it is massive. Hemoptysis is a common complication of Eisenmenger syndrome. Its frequency increases with age. It is an important cause of mortality in patients with Eisenmenger syndrome. Embolization of systemic–pulmonary collateral arteries is an effective method in the treatment of hemoptysis in eligible patients with Eisenmenger syndrome. In this case report, a patient with Eisenmenger syndrome, developed due to large patent ductus arteriosus, received dual pulmonary arterial hyper tension-specific treatment, after the development of hemoptysis, medical stabilization was provided with initial inhaled nitric oxide therapy and then treated with bronchial artery embolization without complications is presented.
