    Hemoptysis is a rare complaint in the pediatric population. Although most cases of pediatric hemoptysis are from benign causes and are self-limiting, there is a need to establish the severity of hemoptysis and establish the cause, which can be assessed by eliciting a good history and a thorough physical examination. The most common cause in pediatric age group is lower respiratory infections: pneumonia and tracheobronchitis, foreign body aspiration, and aberrant bronchial artery circulation. Here is a case of 4-year-old female patient who presented with 2 days history of hemoptysis two episodes to the pediatric emergency. She was brought by the mother who provided the history of the child. There were no similar complaints in past and no significant family history. She also gave a history of recurrent lower respiratory tract infections since birth. The patient was stable on admission no respiratory distress, afebrile, and no evidence of current bleeding. She was given nebulization with salbutamol and she responded well. The patient was discharged with instructions to follow-up with a pediatric department.
