Parenchymal pulmonary endometriosis has unique symptoms such as hemoptysis, dyspnea and chest pain in associated with menstruation. We experienced a case of parenchymal pulmonary endometriosis with the complaints of catamenial hemoptysis. Bronchoalveolar lavage(BAL) was performed when catamenial hemoptysis occurred. The BAL fluid showed many erythrocytes, hemosiderin-laden macrophages, and sheets of endometrial stromal cells.
