Nishi Somarkutty [2] | Rintu Mary Roy | Dr. Sippy Biju Thomas | Dr. Sunil Antony

Abstract: Acute pulmonary embolism is a very commonly underdiagnosed and potentially fatal disease. The varied clinical manifestations could be the outcome of intricate interactions between several organs. The unpredictable way in which pulmonary embolism presents itself frequently impedes prompt identification and treatment, leading to a higher mortality rate. Enhancing our knowledge of the various clinical symptoms and figuring out their underlying mechanisms can aid with timely intervention. Here we present a series of 12 cases which highlights different clinical presentations of pulmonary embolism. The necessity of maintaining a high index of clinical suspicion for pulmonary embolism in patients who are immobilized, quick diagnostic testing, and prompt treatment for patients who present with pulmonary embolism are all emphasised in this article.
