The authors report a paradoxical presentation of fat embolism after uncemented total hip arthroplasty. The patient presented vertigo and diplopia after surgery. Cerebral fat embolism was diagnosed by MRI. A patent foramen ovale was responsible for the venous to arterial circulation shunt. Treatment was conservative. Spontaneous and complete recovery occurred.
