We report the case of a 4-year-old girl, successfully treated by surgical pulmonary embolectomy for acute massive pulmonary embolism. She was known to have a congenital antithrombin III deficiency diagnosed after a familial history of thromboembolic events. Surgical embolectomy may be considered as a treatment option in selected patient with anatomically extensive pulmonary embolism.
