We report a rare case of Pulmonary Artery Aneurysm (PAA) thrombosis with Combined Pulmonary Fibrosis and Emphysema (CPFE) with pulmonary hypertension. A 75-year-old male presented with haemoptysis, dyspnoea, clubbing and bilateral fine end inspiratory rales on examination. He was diagnosed to have PAA thrombosis with CPFE on the basis of computed tomographical angiography and high resolution computed tomography. He was then managed conservatively with pirfenidone for the interstitial lung disease.
