Abstract

We report a case of young female with remittent bilateral pulmonary embolism and thrombus in the right ventricle, who required highly specialized treatment. The coexistence of right heart thrombus with pulmonary thromboembolism is uncommon; however, significantly worsens patients prognosis. Treatment is still controversial.
