Endobronchial telangiectasias and hemoptysis in scleroderma.
Hemoptysis is considered a rare event in scleroderma and to date only two previous cases could be identified. The occurrence of hemoptysis with bleeding and friable telangiectasias is reported in a patient with rapidly progressing systemic sclerosis. This represents the first report of this association, although bleeding telangiectasias have been reported in other systems. A brief review of the relevant literature is included.
