PMID:  3670199     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of macroscopic tumour embolism from an anaplastic small-cell carcinoma of the bronchus to the aortic bifurcation and the left main coronary artery is described. The emboli occluded both vessels and caused sudden death. To our knowledge, this is the first report of coronary embolism by this type of carcinoma. Previous reports of coronary embolism by lung tumours are reviewed briefly.
