Abstract

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) and massive hemoptysis are the two very severe pulmonary emergencies and require completely different treatments. This is a case-report of an elderly female admitted in our hospital with massive hemoptysis, ultimately diagnosed with pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep venous thrombosis (DVT). The patient was managed successfully with anticoagulation therapy, once hemoptysis was alleviated.
