A case of post-traumatic cerebral air embolism is presented. In the chest-X-radiography fractures of many ribs and hemo-pneumothorax were visible on the right side associated with intra-alveolar, interstitial hemorrhages and mediastinal emphysema. At the end of a CT scan of the head appeared features of arterial air embolism. The patient was diagnosed as brain dead and cardiac arrest occurred one hour after.
