Hemoptysis is one of the most common reasons for seeking emergency care. Infections and malignancy are the leading causes of hemoptysis although caused by various other pulmonary and extrapulmonary conditions. Most causes are self-limiting and do not warrant any aggressive investigation. Endobronchial telangiectasia can rarely cause hemoptysis and is seen in patients with hemorrhagic hereditary telangiectasia or scleroderma. Isolated diffuse endobronchial telangiectasia is rare and is only reported in one case in literature. We present another case of diffuse endobronchial telangiectasia in a young adult who presented with recurrent hemoptysis. Computer tomography scan was normal, but bronchoscopy showed multiple endobronchial arteriovenous malformations in the entire tracheobronchial tree.
