Hemoptysis due to saphenous venous graft (SVG) aneurysm is an extremely rare condition and published literature has described the role of conservative management, surgical resection, and covered stent. Here, we report a successful placement of a covered stent for SVG aneurysm in a 56-year-old male who presented with hemoptysis. He was a known diabetic and had undergone a coronary artery bypass grafting 5 years ago. Computed tomography (CT) chest and fiberoptic bronchoscopy performed in another local hospital had revealed blood in the left lingula with spillover into the left lung parenchyma. Hence, he had received empirical anti-tuberculosis medication for 2 months without any improvement. He was referred to our hospital for further management of hemoptysis. Multidetector CT (MDCT) angiography of the chest covering coronaries performed at our hospital revealed SVG aneurysm that was managed with covered stent placement.
