A 20-year-old male patient with no previous medical history presented with new-onset hemoptysis for 2 days with episodes of severe coughing, which was initially nonproductive. However, he went on to have 10–15 episodes of expectoration of bright red blood. The patient did not complain of any dyspnea, chest pain, fever, light-headedness, abdominal pain, melena, nausea, or vomiting. Other review of symptoms was negative. He denied any smoking, alcohol, or drug use and had no significant family history.
