N-Butyl cyanoacrylate embolization of peripheral pulmonary artery aneurysms has rarely been performed. This report presents a young woman with a history of patent ductus arteriosus and massive hemoptysis secondary to pulmonary artery aneurysm, successfully managed by embolotherapy using n-Butyl cyanoacrylate. This is the first report of n-Butyl cyanoacrylate embolization treatment of a bleeding pulmonary artery aneurysm in the setting of patent ductus arteriosus. The pertinent literature has been reviewed and the clinical background and the procedure have been explained.

Keywords: N-Butyl cyanoacrylate, pulmonary artery aneurysm, pulmonary artery embolization, patent ductus arteriosus, hemoptysis, embolotherapy.
