Bronchial artery aneurysm (BAA) is a rare finding often found in patients with underlying diseases such as cystic fibrosis. We present a case of two BAAs in a 55-year-old male patient with a diagnosis of cystic fibrosis, which had been misdiagnosed as lymph nodes in a prior non-contrast computed tomography study, as enlarged lymph nodes are much more commonly seen than BAAs. High mortality is associated with BAA ruptures; thus, accurate and timely diagnosis along with treatment is especially crucial.
