Abstract

Pulmonary embolism is a rare problem in the pediatric age group. As in adults, symptoms include tachypnea, chest discomfort, and hypoxia, but the index of suspicion in making this diagnosis in children is low. This report confirms the usefulness of two-dimensional and Doppler echocardiography in the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism, regardless of patient age. Causes of hypercoagulable states in children are also briefly discussed.
