RUSSI, María Eugenia; VERO, Antonia; PINCHAK, María Catalina  and  PIREZ, Catalina. Hemoptisis en la infancia: Un desafío diagnóstico-terapéutico para el pediatra. A propósito de dos casos clínicos. Arch. Pediatr. Urug. [online]. 2007, vol.78, n.3, pp.222-227. ISSN 1688-1249.

Two cases of previously healthy children who suffered hemoptysis without hemodynamic compromise are presented. An underlying arteriovenous malformation by arteriography was identified in both cases. Endovascular treatment was performed using selective bronchial artery embolectomy of the anomalous vessels with an excellent recovery of both patients with no further complications. Arteriography played a vital role in early diagnosis and treatment avoiding new complications.
