Abstract

A case of a blood clot simulating an intrabronchial neoplasm on computed tomography is presented. Although an intrabronchial lesion in a patient with hemoptysis is usually a malignancy, other etiologies must be considered. Computed tomography is an excellent modality for detecting and evaluating intrabronchial pathology but bronchoscopy is necessary for tissue diagnosis.
