Abstract
Pregnancy induces many physiologic changes, and it can cause hemoptysis in relation to the underlying or potential pulmonary diseases. Although hemoptysis is not a frequent event during pregnancy, a thorough search for its etiology and then immediate management should be initiated for a case of massive hemoptysis to avoid serious adverse effects on both the fetus and the mother. Most hemoptysis events during pregnancy are related to well known etiologies, but there are a few reported cases of hemoptysis in pregnant women who are without any underlying lung lesion. We report here on a case of a pregnant woman with total lung collapse due to hemoptysis, and a thorough search for the etiology after delivery could not reveal any etiology.
Key Words: Pregnancy, Hemoptysis, Lung collapse
