Catamenial hemoptysis is a term used to describe recurrent hemoptysis occuring at

the time of menstruation and is caused by the presence of thoracic endometriosis. The

diagnosis is almost always established on the clinical grounds and by exclusion of other

causes of recurrent hemoptysis. The pathogenesis of the thoracic endometriosis is not

clear but several hypothesis have been proposed, such as retrograde flow of the

endometrial tissue through the diaphragmatic defects, microembolization through pelvic

veins and differenciation into endometrial tissues.

We report a case of a 35-year-old woman who presented with catamenial hemoptysis

caused by the endometriosis of lung parenchyme. The lesion was localized to the right

upper lobe posterior segment and right lower lobe superior segment by the computerized

tomogram of the chest during the time of mensturation and treated effectively with

bisegmental wedge resection.
