Abstract

We present a case of FES (fat embolism syndrome) with very serious neurologic signs (convulsions, deep coma, decerebrate response to noxious stimuli), without lung lesions. Nuclear magnetic resonance imaging revealed vascular alterations of the cerebral hemisphere, truncus, and cerebellum. The patient recovered without neurologic sequelae.
