Abstract

Acute pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE) is a challenge to recognize and diagnose due to its varied presentation. The radiological imaging for diagnosis of PTE may be difficult to perform in certain critical or hemodynamically unstable cases. The electrocardiogram (ECG) changes may not be specific in PTE but together with clinical features and history, can form the basis of suspicion leading to early diagnosis of this life threatening disease. The authors present a case of acute PTE in a patient with carcinoma cervix who presented with the ECG changes leading to her early diagnosis, thus saving her life.
