Abstract

Pulmonary embolism is an acute and severe medical condition. Its clinical characteristics are not pathognomonic and can mimick other medico-surgical emergencies. We report the case of a patient admitted with a clinical manifestation of acute coronary syndrome with electrical changes and elevation in cardiac enzymes without abnormal substrate on the coronarography, enabling diagnosis of pulmonary embolism.
