In this write-up, we report a case of persistent hemoptysis after percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), which was diagnosed as diffuse alveolar hemorrhage (DAH). DAH is a life-threatening medical emergency that can be caused by numerous disorders and it, further, presents with hemoptysis, anemia, and diffuse alveolar infiltrates. Early diagnosis is usually required for this noninfectious cause in post PTCA patient, as it is very rare complication.
