    Abstract: Hughes and Stovin first reported a syndrome consisting of multiple pulmonary artery aneurysms and venous thrombosis in 1959. We encountered a 45-year-old man who had massive hemoptysis and leg swelling. The CT and angiography showed huge bilateral pulmonary artery aneurysms and...

    We have reported a patient with aortopulmonary window (APW) simulating truncus. In classically defined APW, aorta and main pulmonary artery separate again after a distance from the window and form the aortic arch and pulmonary arteries. However, in our case, there was no separation and they...
