Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We present a rare case of malignant embolization of the brachial artery from a primary pulmonary tumor. The arterial embolism was the initial event in the clinical course of the disease. A review of the literature revealed forty three cases of malignant peripheral arterial embolism reported, and only two similar cases in which the embolization was the initial event of the disease.
