We present a case of a 57 year old woman who suffered from massive hemoptysis; she was sent to our Department for a suspect neoformant lesion. We assumed it might be a Dielafoy’s disease and proceeded with an imaging study that confirmed the diagnosis. After embolization the patient no longer showed signs of bleeding. In brief, we concluded that whenever there is a suspect of Dielafoy’s disease, the biopsy has to be avoided.
