Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pulmonary embolism is an insidious life-threatening condition. Its diagnosis represents a challenging topic in daily clinical practice since the recognition and the appropriate management of the condition can lead to the decrease of potentially fatal consequences. We present a clinical case which highlights the necessity for an increased level of 'surveillance' from the involved physicians since features of thromboembolic events may be elusive or vague.
