Role of lung resection for benign pulmonary diseases presented with hemoptysis is still controversial. We retrospectively reviewed the patients’ records with significant hemoptysis that underwent anatomic pulmonary resection from 2009 to 2015. Among ten patients (male 9, female 1, mean age 52.3 years), eight patients had inflammatory diseases including aspergilloma or bronchiectasis and nine patients underwent lobectomy or pneumonectomy. There was no postoperative mortality and recurrence of hemoptysis. Lung resection is still one of the effective treatment options for benign lung diseases presented with hemoptysis although the number of included patients was small.
