Aortobronchial fistula is an uncommon clinical entity, with unpredictable clinical course and significant mortality. Here, we describe a case of fistulous tract between a descending aortic graft and a branch of the left upper lobar bronchus leading to massive hemoptysis causing death for hemorrhagic shock in a 72-year-old man.

Here, we describe a case of fistulous tract between a descending aortic graft and a branch of the left upper lobar bronchus leading to massive hemoptysis causing death for hemorrhagic shock in a 72-year-old man.
