A young woman presented with recurrent hemoptysis temporally associated with menstruation. Catamenial hemoptysis, an extremely uncommon disorder, is usually caused by the presence of ectopic endometrial tissue within the lung. The use of progesterone suppressed menstruation and hemoptysis during four months of treatment. Chest x-ray was normal.
