Abstract: Aortobronchial fistulas are an uncommon and serious cause of hemoptysis. We present three cases of aortobronchial fistulas that were diagnosed and treated at our hospital. They were presented as massive hemoptysis. The clinical suspicion of a leaking thoracic aortic aneurysm into the bronchial tree should prompt the correct diagnostic procedures since early surgery is the only way to manage this condition.
