One coughs amazing blood clot shaped like a bronchial tree

A 36-year-old man suffering from chronic heart failure shocked the doctors when he spit out a blood clot at the end of November that was very similar to the bronchial tree in his right lung.

Georg Wieselthaler, a transplant and pulmonary surgeon at the University of California, San Francisco, told the Atlantic, "We were astonished. It's a curiosity you can not imagine – I mean, that's very, very, very rare. "

According to the New England Journal of Medicine, the man was an intensive care patient at San Francisco University Medical Center who was being treated for end-stage heart failure.
