Abstract:Pulmonary thromboembolism represents the obstruction in the arterial pulmonary tree by thrombi formed in the deep venous system or in the right cavities of the heart. We present the case of a 77 year old woman who was admitted in the emergency room with progressive dyspnea, fever, cough and sinus tachycardia. Blood test showed positive d-dimers and later the CT scan revealed multiple thrombi in the lung segmentary arteries.
Keywords:psychic factors, cardiovascular illnesses, collagen ilnesses, psychological questionnaires.
