Hughes-Stovin Syndrome (HSS) is a very rare condition characterized by pulmonary aneurysms and peripheral thrombophlebitis of lower limbs. The pathogenesis of Hughes Stovin Syndrome is unknown. It’s considered as a clinical variant of Behçet’s disease. The main clinical manifestation is haemoptysis and dyspnea. The management of HSS can either be medical or surgical. We report the case of a young patient of 25 years old followed for Bechet's disease, who presents for a medium abundance hemoptysis with a swelling of the lower limbs evolving for 20 days, the radiological investigations made it possible to pose the diagnosis of the Syndrome of Huges-Stovin showing thrombosed aneurysms of the pulmonary arteries with thrombophlebitis of the lower limbs, the patient benefited from an immunosuppressive treatment, the evolution was marked by a good clinical evolution.
